Each year our Open Exhibition provides an exciting opportunity for amateur and professional artists to celebrate creativity side by side in the Ferens Art Gallery's beautiful temporary exhibition spaces. The display often includes a truly diverse selection of artworks in a variety of styles and media, many of which are also for sale, allowing visitors to purchase original artworks at a range of prices. If you would like the chance for your artwork to be exhibited in one of the UK's leading regional art galleries enter the Open Exhibition.
