Qube Arts Open Exhibition 2020

Qube Gallery hosts an annual Qube Open Art Competition. This increasingly popular event attracts artists from across the country, with entries reflecting a set theme. Anyone is eligible to enter and works can be of any medium, 2D, 3D or digital. A £500 cash prize will be awarded to the winning artist, decided by an independent panel of judges.

An exhibition of shortlisted entries is on display at Qube* from 7th August to 21st September. *Due to the current pandemic our opening times may be reduced. Please call us on 01691 656882 to check opening times before travelling.

This is the 10th year of the Qube Open and the first year we have included all the works online. Click on the entries below to see the full images and to find out more about the artists.

We need your votes! The People’s Choice Prize is awarded to the artist with the most public votes. The winner will receive their own 4 week exhibition at Qube the following year. Vote for your favourite entry in the gallery or online by emailing art@qube-oca.org.uk with your name, your postcode, artist name and title of work. *Last day for votes – Thursday 1st October*
