My Shrewsbury magazine is delighted to be supporting a new art competition for the Belle Vue Arts Festival which will give winners the chance to be featured in The Soden Collection’s very fine gallery window on Wyle Cop and have a write-up in My Shrewsbury magazine.

The competition is open to artists local to Shrewsbury & FREE to enter. Entries can be in any medium, on any subject - be as creative as you like! 

Sue Mann of BVAF said: “Our thriving Belle Vue Arts Festival is delighted to announce this brand new art opportunity for 2021. This exciting competition will spotlight a Shrewsbury artist in a commercial gallery in Shrewsbury. What an amazing opportunity!

 “Our vision is to inspire, encourage and support the local community, particularly in recent times and we are very grateful to The Soden Collection and My Shrewsbury for their support.

“This is an opportunity not to be missed, so just follow Jonathan’s advice and be as creative as you like! You never know, we might see YOUR work in the gallery window!”
