There’s still plenty of time for local artists to enter Sandwell’s Hidden Treasures competition.
Hidden Treasures is open to all amateur artists, schools and community groups, with 31 May as the deadline for entries.
Artists are being urged to submit a themed piece of work to feature in the borough’s summer arts trail.
They can select a favourite building, open space, walk, view or local attraction as an inspiration their Hidden Treasures entry.
Art work will be shortlisted to a collection of pieces which will then be exhibited across the borough, allowing members of the public to vote for the best piece of art work.
Councillor Syeda Khatun, deputy leader of Sandwell Council, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to get inspired and showcase their artistic talents. It will also shine a light on the many ‘hidden treasures’ across Sandwell’s six towns.”
