Help Oswestry Town Council choose the best design style for a new mural to add colour and vibrancy to Powis Indoor Market.

Earlier this year, artists were invited to submit concepts for a large-scale mural for the outside wall as part of a bigger project to spruce up the town’s market with external funding secured by the Council.

Although there was no set theme, artists were asked that the designs be a celebration of our market and town. They were also asked to provide details of materials to be used, timescales, safety considerations and expected durability of mural.

Six artists have now been shortlisted from 11 submissions and local people are invited to vote for their favourite design style.

Each artist has provided a mock-up to illustrate their design and style, however, the concept designs are subject to change.

The design mock-ups, which will be kept anonymous, will be on display in The Guildhall and Powis Indoor Market until 26 June for market traders, shoppers and general public to view and vote. One vote per person.

  • Powis Indoor Market open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9am to 4pm
  • Guildhall open Monday to Thursday 9am to 5pm, Friday 9am to 4pm, and Saturday 9am to 3pm

The top three designs voted for by the public will go to a meeting of the Full Council with a recommendation from the working group set up to oversee the project. The final pick will be commissioned to create the mural.

It is expected the installation will be completed by the end of this summer.
