For more than 100 years Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, the first municipal Museum & Art Gallery outside of London, has played host to an ‘open-style’ exhibition, an event which celebrates the enormous creative talent within the region. The Nottingham Castle Open is one of the busiest and most exciting events in the Castle’s Annual calendar.

The Nottingham Castle Open 2014 is now seeking applications in any media from Midlands-based Visual Artists over the age of 18, for an exhibition which will take place from 13 December 2014 –18 January 2015.

Each exhibitor has the chance to receive a wide variety of prizes, which include the Grand Prize of £2,000, alongside other cash, materials, exhibition and residency opportunities courtesy of the many sponsors who support the exhibition.

 The exhibition is always a ‘visual feast’ that demonstrates current artistic practices from the widest possible range of work made over the past 12 months, and as such, the Nottingham Castle Open is a valuable and respected vehicle for the region's emerging and established artists.
