The Vale of Glamorgan Council and Arts Development Service, alongside Art Central Friends, is inviting local residents to submit examples of art produced during the coronavirus lockdown to feature in an online exhibition.

With the Country stuck indoors, creativity has flourished over the last few months and the aim of this initiative is to capture and celebrate that fact.

Open to those of all ages and experience levels, full details of how to enter can be found on the Council website. We are asking for one submission per person of a piece of art made during the lockdown.

Participants can use any material and medium for their creation, meaning the finished piece may be visual, performance, written, a painting, drawing, song, sculpture, film, photograph or anything else in between.

Cllr Kathryn McCaffer, Vale of Glamorgan Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, Arts and Culture, said:

“The last few months have been a difficult time for everyone as the Country battles coronavirus. More time spent inside has conjured up a range of emotions, including frustration, isolation and many more.

“But this period has also provided an opportunity to express such feelings creatively and as a result, the arts have come into their own. This has enabled us to connect, communicate and entertain, highlighting people’s creative skills and hidden talents. These efforts help keep spirits up, combating issues related to health and wellbeing. Though we all have to keep our distance at the moment, by sharing our experiences through art we can bring communities together again.

“We want to share and showcase, creative things people have been doing during the lockdown and share them in an online platform and I would encourage anyone interested to please submit something.”
