petite pieces

An Open Call, Open Medium, Open Skill Competition

What is 'petite pieces'

Every year in February, Aspire runs our favourite and most popular competition – ‘petite pieces’ -  to kick off another year of amazing exhibitions!

‘petite pieces’ is a 40 cm x 40 cm x 40 cm, open theme, open medium competition with numerous prizes to be won!

It is open call and can be entered by anyone of any skill level. However, this does not mean only professional artists win as the public votes for their favourite and the Gallery Judges choose based on a number of factors. Not just technical composition.

We will see your work soon!
