Aspiring young artists have been busy creating hundreds of amazing artworks for this year’s Black Swan Arts Young Open.

The judges have selected 166 pieces (from an incredible 408 entries) which will go on display in the Long Gallery and Round Tower at Black Swan Arts. Four winners will be chosen in each age category: the 8–11 winners will receive vouchers from Studio Prints and Postscript, and in the 12–15 and 16–19 categories the winners get the opportunity for a one-to-one workshop with Amanda Bee (painting and monoprinting), Kim Birchall (ceramics), David Daniels (animation), Toby Holmes (sculpture), Dan Hopkins (photography), Nicky Knowles (painting and collage), Kay Lewis Bell (drawing and painting), Chris Pig (printmaking) or Sandra Porter (printmaking).

This year’s judging panel includes Frome Town Mayor, Councillor Rich Ackroyd; young Bristol-based artist Rhiannon Davies; Graffiti artist Graham Dews (aka Paris); Tina Gaisford-Waller from Winstone’s Hunting Raven Books in Frome; and visualisation and concept artist Matt Wellsted.

The show opens on Saturday 30 March at 12pm with the prize-giving ceremony and continues until 27 April. Visitors get a chance to vote for their favourite artwork and have their name entered into a raffle to win an Ellenbray voucher. There will also be a fun Art Trail to follow around the building.
