Open Call for recent graduates from Tipperary

This year’s collaboration with Clonmel Junction Arts Festival links in with the Festival theme "Legacy X Next", where the "X" represents a transition or a bridge between the legacy of existing artists and the emergence of the next generation. For this exhibition, the focus is firmly on the future– specifically on recent graduates from Tipperary who have the potential of being the next generation of legacy makers within the Arts.

Please read the following criteria carefully:

- Recent graduates will be defined as those that have graduated from any BA Fine Art programme (or similar) in the years 2020-2023. Any work created since graduation will be accepted. In the case of 2023 graduates work from their degree show will be accepted.
