TIME is running out for those young and old with an artistic bent to bear their soul on canvass, in clay…or in any medium they choose!

Council arts official, Rebecca Weaver, today said that the people of Ipswich can still enter a joint Suffolk and Essex open submission competition held in collaboration with a gallery in Colchester and the Wolsey Art Gallery, Christchurch Mansion.

Artists of any age from the two counties are eligible to enter the Over the River competition, which follows last year's highly successful On the Border.

"It is open to anyone who chooses to create anything in any visual art form they want," said Rebecca.

If the work finds itself into either gallery, it will be judged by two renowned faces in the artworld.

Internationally acclaimed artist, Mariele Neudecker, who has exhibited at the Tate Liverpool and in Japan and Germany, is due to be one of the pair of judges of the submitted works.

She will be joined by Peter Jenkinson, who helped establish the new £21m New Art Gallery in Walsall. He is also chair of the Visual Arts and Galleries Association.

But hurry! Closing date is tomorrow. Application forms are available from the Wolsey Gallery. Submission is by slide, video, CD-Rom or disc. An £8 submission fee will be charged. Selection will take place on December 8.
