Artists invited to display artwork at Porthcawl’s Grand Pavilion

New and emerging or established freelance artists are being invited to display their work at the Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl as part of an ongoing Promenade Poster Exhibition.

Awen Cultural Trust is opening up the opportunity to artists for exhibitions between May and August 2021. Artwork will be displayed in the building’s external poster boards and in the windows for periods of four to six weeks.

Awen’s chief executive Richard Hughes said: “As this Grade II listed theatre prepares to reopen for shows, this is an exciting opportunity for artists to showcase their artwork and make an impact in a high area of footfall in a popular seaside location.

“When we launched the Promenade Poster Exhibitions last summer, we received a lot of positive feedback and are now looking forward to seeing this year’s submissions.

“We welcome all queries and submissions from emerging or established freelance artists in Wales – we are interested in hearing about proposals in all mediums on projects that can be developed in collaboration with the creative team at the theatre.”

Fees and expenses will be covered. For more information email

The deadline to submit artwork is Saturday 3 April.

The project is supported by Arts Council Wales.
