The Allen Gallery will host its annual Open Exhibition from 13th October until 27th October 2018. All local amateur and professional artists are invited to submit up to three works in any medium, including sculpture, photographs and textiles. An entry fee of £2.00 per work applies, to cover administration costs.
There will be a prize for the the work considered outstanding by the judges. There will also be a prize for the Visitors’ Favourite.
Sophie McLean, Manager of the Gallery says “Following the huge interest in the open exhibition, we once again invite submissions from local artists for what promises to be the best open exhibition yet. ”
The Gallery hopes to display as many works as space permits, however it may not be possible to display all works submitted. A panel of judges will make the final decision as to the works displayed. There is no limit on the size of works, however there is a limit on the number of very large works that can be displayed and floor space is limited.
Interested artists can get more information and an entry form from the Allen Gallery or by email by contacting Alton.Museums@hampshireculturaltrust.org.uk. Works need to be delivered, with completed entry form, to the Gallery between Tuesday 2 and Saturday 6 October.
