Opportunity: The Open
Deadline: 19th May 2017
Entry Fee: £7 per work, £10 for 2 works, £13 for 3 works. See website for details of concessions.
Details: The search is on to find the paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, sculptures and craft that will feature in this year’s Open Art Exhibition.
Artists hoping to showcase their work in the Adult Category of the annual Open exhibition can apply online until Friday 19 May 2017. A panel of independent judges will then select the very best works to feature in this year’s exhibition.
Owing to ongoing building works at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery, this year’s exhibition will take place in the refurbished Old Library Gallery at the Leicester Adult Education College on Belvoir Street. Arranged over two floors, the gallery has been redecorated in readiness for exhibition.
Now in its 28th year, the Open welcomes work from artists young and old, living or working in Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire or Northamptonshire.
Work featured in the exhibition will be available for sale, providing opportunity to start or develop your own original art collection.
