The Yellow door is looking for artwork for its open exhibition, The Other Bard, which will run during the bus Big Burns Supper festival.

This is a special themed exhibition, and artists wishing to enter should submit artwork taking inspiration from the works for Shakespeare.

The exhibition runs from 15 January - 1 February.

How to submit your artwork

Entry forms, with full details for this Open Exhibition, will be available from the Yellow Door Gallery, 16 Queen Street, Dumfries, DG1 2JF.

Each work submitted (2D or 3D) should be accompanied by the Shakespeare quote/extract, poem, sonnet, etc., which inspired it. It is intended that this will then be displayed alongside the art work, in the same way as exhibitions in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Entries should be submitted to the Gallery by Monday 13 January 2020. There will be a nominal entry fee for each work and a small prize will be given for the best judged artwork.
