ArtWaves Public Art

ArtWaves is back for 2020, taking over Bridlington’s signature venue Bridlington Spa and further afield for its sixth year on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May 2020 with an additional fringe programme running from Monday 25 May.

This year is set to be the biggest visual art showcase yet, bringing traditional, digital, contemporary and urban art through a vibrant programme curated for all; from the experienced artist to those simply looking to get creative.

The programme will see the highly anticipated return of artists from previous ArtWaves alongside an elective mix of new artists to create the festival line up. There will be demonstrations from award-winning artists, masterclasses, workshops, installations, live street art, an open-air painting competition and much more.

ArtWaves Festival Director, Lauren Frost said, “We had great feedback from the 2019 festival and our collaboration with local businesses on things such as the ‘Visual Art Bird Trail’ and the art gallery tour so we want to build on that for 2020 as well as expanding the event along the promenade and across the town so ArtWaves continues to grow in both a literal and an opportunistic sense.”

Alongside the release of the new dates, the Open Exhibition is returning. The exhibition is open to all, allowing artists far and wide to submit their best work on a multitude of themes or subjects that will be judged on artistic quality and appeal before being displayed in what is set to be a highly popular diverse exhibition.

The closing date for entries into the exhibition is 1 May 2020.
