Calling all local artists – Blackburn Museum launches its very first ART OPEN exhibition

Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery is holding its very first ART OPEN this October to showcase local art and talent. Find out how to join in and exhibit.

There is no theme for this year’s exhibition and the Museum can’t wait to showcase all kinds of local creativity from painting to drawing to sculpture this autumn. With prizes to win and the option to sell your work this is an exciting chance for you or someone you know to showcase their art to a wide audience!

The exhibition will be on display from October 1 until January 14, from Wednesday to Saturday between 12pm and 4:45pm.

Due to restrictions in hanging space the Museum require the area of the painting submitted to be no larger than 40″ х 40″ (100x100cm), including the frame. Entries are strictly limited to either one large piece (max 100x100cm) or two small pieces. Sculptures and other media of a reasonable size can also be exhibited.

All works must be the artists own work, you cannot submit on behalf of someone else. As this is their first open, demand may be high and they may not be able to show all works so please read the entry form and terms and conditions form closely for more details regarding submissions. Submissions will be open from between Thursday 15th – Saturday 17th September 12pm – 4:45pm.

Entry costs £5. To find out how to join in, visit the Museum’s website here
