Open Art Exhibition
Knowsley’s Open Art Exhibition is an annual showcase of visual art created by the talented people of Knowsley.
The exhibition is open to anyone who lives, works, volunteers, or studies in Knowsley, and the Young Artists Open which is part of the exhibition, is for under 18s and shows off local young talent.
The exhibition is a great way for emerging creatives to see their hard work on display. Entrants are given great creative freedom, with there being no restrictions other than that the art must be 2D and mirror-plated.
The visiting public will be voting for their favourite art piece, giving artists the chance to be awarded prizes and be recognised for their great contribution to the exhibition.
See what talent Knowsley has to offer at the exhibition in Kirkby Gallery, running from Monday 11 February to Saturday 4 May 2019.
