The Open Exhibition is coming back in 2019!

The Open Exhibition is an visual art competition which is open to all. Entered works are judged by an esteemed panel of judges with a history of experience within the arts. Selected artworks are then exhibited as part of a professional public exhibition across three gallery spaces in Peterborough Museum & City Gallery. Prizes will be awarded for specialist categories. We welcome entries both locally and nationally.
