Results

With 447 submissions, the selectors spent a long and challenging day deciding which works to include in this year’s Open exhibition. Their brief was to draw together a body of work that represented the wide range of creative practice taking place in our region, from style and medium, to subject and technical ability. From the large number of applications they finally drew together works from 37 artists.
