Ceramics Ireland Open Submission  Members Exhibition
3rd - 29th August 2020
at the Printworks, Dublin Castle
in partnership with the Office of Public Works

We are delighted to announce the details of our upcoming Open Submission Members Exhibition Clay/works at the Printworks in Dublin Castle.

All 4 Awards for 2020 will be presented at the exhibition. Thanks again to our sponsors for your continued, generous support. 


  • The 5th Blue Egg Gallery Bursary - €500 - is open for applications- Click here for more details - the winner will be announced during the show

  • The Ceramics Ireland Award for Creativity in Craftsmanship - €500

  • The Peter Brennan Pioneering Potter Award - €500

  • The Gallery Zozimus Purchase Award

​We are looking for up to three/four works from each entrant. Depending on space and scale, and due to having to implement a one way viewing system, not all works from each entrant may be shown but we guarantee to exhibit at least one piece of work.


While we are delighted to be in a position to proceed with this Exhibition, that has become a highlight of our annual calendar of events, we are ever mindful of the ongoing changes to Government/HSE Guidelines and we will be keeping these under review as times goes by.  Unfortunately we will be unable to facilitate an opening reception and the exhibition will open to the public at 11am on Monday 3rd August.
