Oxo Tower Wharf
10 April to 19 April 2020
The biggest biennial art awards in the UK exploring spirituality through the visual arts is now open for submissions.
The Chaiya Art Awards is open to any artist and covers all mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, mixed media, photography and video. We have also introduced an additional category for Community Groups, who can submit a collaborative piece. Artists are invited to be authentic and daring as they respond to the theme. This competition is open to people of all faiths, to those who have no belief in God, and to everyone in between. It’s about continuing an age old conversation in a modern setting with contemporary eyes.
The winners exhibition will take place at London’s prestigious South Bank gallery@oxo from 10-19 April 2020.
The first Chaiya Art Awards proved hugely popular, with over 450 entries and more than 2,700 exhibition visitors. New to Chaiya 2020 will be an ‘affordable art fair’ over two days of the exhibition. We will invite artists in the exhibition to be present, to discuss, promote and sell their work.
A respected panel will anonymously judge entries on Originality and Technical excellence, Theme Interpretation and Emotional Impact .
