Open Art Exhibiton




The Rugby Open Exhibition is open to artists from Rugby and adjoining counties (Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and the West Midlands).  Each artist can submit up to three works.. All works will be subject to selection by a panel of judges including art professionals. The resulting exhibition will show the diversity of current artistic practice in painting, print, textiles, sculpture and new media.

Artists whose work is selected for the Rugby Open 18 will have the opportunity of winning one of a series of artist prizes. These range from financial awards to an opportunity for an artist to hold a solo show in the Floor One Gallery. Additionally, all of the work in the Rugby Open 18 can be for sale, which means that the exhibition is an excellent opportunity to sell work to those wishing to invest in high quality art at affordable prices.

 Entries will be accepted in the form of painting, sculpture, drawings, original prints, photographs, film and craftwork. We cannot accept installations or performances. Reproductions of drawings and paintings cannot be classed as prints and are, therefore, ineligible for entry. All work must remain in the gallery until the end of the exhibition. No works can be submitted that have been exhibited at Rugby Art Gallery and Museum before and works should have been created in the last year. Application forms must be submitted by 5th November 2018.

The Rugby Youth Open is open to any young person who lives, studies or works in Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire and the West Midlands and who is between the ages of 14-19.  Each young artist can submit up to two works at a cost of £3 per work.  There are separate prizes for the 14-19 category.
