The work of 62 local, national and international artists is currently on display in an Open Call Submission Exhibition at the Presentation Centre in Enniscorthy which will continue until June 23.

It's the second year that the event has been held to celebrate creative talent in the locality and further afield with artists of all ages and varying experience invited to submit work on a theme of their choice.

'The Open Call serves as a reminder that creativity has no bounds,' said curator Lisa Byrne who officially opened the exhibition and spopke about the 'astounding variety of artworks included'.

Last year, a total of 31 artists submitted 53 pieces and this year there are 101 pieces of artwork by 66 artists on display, indicating the growing level of interest in the exhibition.

Lisa said it was great to see so many creative people living in the area. 'Both professional and amateur artists have come forward to exhibit their work and it makes for really exciting show.'

'We would like to take this opportunity to extend our congratulations to all the artists involved and wish them all the best in their future endeavours,' said Lisa who thanked the exhibition sponsors Smyths Arrow, The Wilds and Wexford Arts Centre for their support.
