Call for Submissions

axis is seeking digital image submissions from artists aged 55 + in the Dublin

North West Area for our annual Bealtaine art exhibition. 

The axis “Bealtaine” exhibition celebrates creativity as we age and aims to showcase the hard work of local artists and art groups. A highlight of the year in the axis gallery, this vibrant, touching exhibition is always a delight.

This year we are doing something different. As the axis Gallery is closed we are asking artists aged 55+ to send us in your work digitally. We will display chosen work on our website and as an axis window display in the main building, visible to passers by.
