Open Call: 20th Knowsley Open Art Exhibition

This is a wonderful opportunity for artists of all ages to showcase up to two pieces of 2D work in a professional gallery setting.

Entrants must either live, work, study or volunteer in the Borough of Knowsley in order to be eligible. There is no age limit. There are two categories: Adult (aged 18 and over) and Young Artist (aged 0-17).

You can use whichever medium you prefer: painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, mixed media, textiles – all we ask is that your 2D work is framed or on a stretched canvas and has mirror plates so it can be affixed securely to the gallery wall.

There are prizes available, and exhibiting artists also have the option of selling their artwork in the Open Art Auction at the end of the exhibition.
