About

The Open Exhibition

Leicester's ever popular open exhibition, now in its 29th year, showcases contemporary artwork and craft by local and regional artists.

The annual Open exhibition is the city's premier showcase for visual art within the city, celebrating the rich and diverse skills of our local artists.

The Open exhibition, including the outstanding Youth Category (ages 5-19), provides an excellent opportunity for artists from both amateur and professional backgrounds to demonstrate their artistic skills and creative vision.

The gallery includes a space, materials and regular workshops to create your own artwork that could be submitted to the exhibition the following year, please see the museums facebook page for event details.
