The next exhibition in Kirkby Gallery will be the 18th annual Knowsley Open Art Exhibition, where artists of all ages who live, work, study or volunteer in Knowsley come together to exhibit their 2D artwork in a salon-hang style visual extravaganza!
This year, to make the exhibition all the more exciting, the artworks will be sold at a live auction conducted by celebrity auctioneer Adam Partridge, with a percentage of the proceeds going towards the Friends of Kirkby Gallery and Prescot Museum to support their work.
There are no restrictions on the medium you use, or the subject matter, but pieces must be fitted with mirror-plates. Artists can submit up to two pieces of work, but in the event they are inundated with entries, they will accept just one work per person.
Artists can submit items into the Open Art Exhibition just for display, or to sell as part of the Affordable Art Auction. For those entering pieces that are not for sale (NFS), there will be a £2 entry fee per NFS artwork. Artists entering their work into the auction, along with young artists (under 18) can enter artworks free of charge.
