Fronteer Open 2018 winners.

The second open competition by art collective Fronteer takes over 35 Chapel Walk at the end of November.

Curated by Sharon Mossbeck and Michael Borkowsky, the Fronteer Open 2019 runs from 26 November to 6 December. Entry is free.

"The standard of work was really high this year, and the exhibition features a diverse range of artwork," Mossbeck told Now Then.

"Expect a chocolate box of delights, with everything from traditional sculpture to prints, photography, and contemporary artworks."

The work is by artists from all backgrounds, from students to professionals from all around the UK

The gallery will present the show in a traditional 'salon' style over two floors, juxtaposing work by different artists in a variety of mediums. Winning artists will receive a £100 prize.

Art website CuratorSpace have sponsored this year's competition. As part of the prize, winning artists will get a year's free profile on the site.

On 6 December, Mossbeck and Borkowsky will award the prizes at a free evening event open to the public.

"The work is by artists from all backgrounds, from students to professionals from all around the UK," said Mossbeck.

"The panel will select one winning artist, while the other winner is decided by public vote in the People's Choice Prize."

"This means that the audience can pick their own winner, and last year every vote really did count as it was a tight contest and went right down to the wire."
