How to Enter the Trefin Museum Art Competition

A SPECIAL open art competition has been launched in Pembrokeshire.

The competition sees local artists and visitors of all ages create works of art to vote for.

It is based at the Trefin Museum opposite The Ship Inn and aims to capture and create the spirit, atmosphere, interior and exterior and/or location of the chapel – where the museum is located – through the drawing.

Artists are encouraged to visit the chapel for inspiration and leave their works on a bench, with visitors encouraged to vote for their favorite photos.

The idea is to create drawings and illustrations on paper using any medium except oil and acrylic with a maximum size of 32x42cm.


The chapel is open every day and the competition runs until Friday October 7th. All works are uploaded to the museum’s Instagram @trefinmuseum.

The competition is a collaboration between independent St Davids shop Basalt & Dune and the museum and will be judged by Mark Raggett de Solva, senior vice-president of the Royal Watercolor Society and artistic director of The Crown.

The prizes offered include an exhibition in the spring of 2023 in the St Davids room at Oriel y Parc, St Davids for two artists and assistance with framing costs with Kadinsky Art in Narberth.

The Harbor Lights Gallery in Porthgain also offers the opportunity for an emerging artist to have their work framed and hung in the gallery.

The artist with the most votes from visitors to the chapel will win a night for two at the Twr y Felin hotel.

There are also prices for children in the age groups 5-11 and 12-18.
