OLD MAYORS PARLOUR - H.ART PRIZE EXHIBITION

The Gallery@OMP offers a first-floor space for the use of artists, artisans, and art-related exhibitors; enabling contemporary artists to present 2-D and 3-D work in a 14th Century building, the Old Mayor's Parlour, at 23 Church Street. Located in the Independent Quarter in Hereford City; Hereford's bijou take on the Brighton Lanes and York's Shambles.

The present building was probably laid-out in the early 16th century. On the first floor of the Old Mayor’s Parlour there is a particularly rare plaster ceiling ; a fine example of ornate decorative plasterwork incorporating coats of arms and nature inspired subjects.

The H.art prize is in its fourth year of running, and contributes money to further three artists careers, as well as providing the opportunity to exhibit in the heart of Hereford for the month of September.

The Biscuit Factory Foundation Open Contemporary Young Artist Award 2019

“Our Open Contemporary Young Artist Award profiles young up and coming talent from across the UK. Launched earlier this year, this national open call was a unique opportunity for artists aged 35 and under, working in a range of media, to submit work for inclusion in a group exhibition at The Biscuit Factory. From more than 600 entries, we have curated a shortlist of 27 artists who will exhibit with us this summer. 

The overall winner, announced at the end of July, will receive a cash prize of £1000 and the opportunity for a solo show later in the year. All work in the exhibition will be available to purchase, with 10 per cent of the proceeds going back to the gallery's charitable arm, The Biscuit Factory Foundation, to contribute to the facilitation of future arts projects in the region.   

The exhibition launches on Friday 19 May and forms part of our eclectic sound and vision themed line-up for The Late Shows – Newcastle and Gateshead's free annual late night culture crawl. “
