ARTISTS will again be showcasing their work at The Open exhibition in Leamington.

The biennial exhibition at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum, which runs from April 14 to June 25, will display an eclectic mix of works from West Midlands based artists.

There will be one overall prize winner who will receive the Open 2017 award of £1,000. Visitors to the exhibition will also be invited to vote for their favourite artwork which will see the winner presented with the People’s Choice Award of £500.

Artist Neil Moore won the Open 2015 prize with his oil painting The Ineluctable Modality of the Visible and Katharine Barker was awarded People’s Choice Award with her mixed media work, Continuum.




Senior curator Dr Chloe Johnson said: “Open exhibitions have been held at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum since the 1930s and continue to be extremely popular. This is the perfect chance for local artists to showcase their work in an exhibition, possibly for the first time.”
