Manchester Open Exhibition 2022

Everyone’s an artist

We’re excited to welcome back the Manchester Open Exhibition – a major open-entry biennial art show celebrating the creative talent of Greater Manchester residents.

From Mon 24 Jan – Sun 27 Mar 2022, HOME Gallery walls will be filled with work from 500+ Greater Manchester residents, selected by a panel consisting of art experts and community representatives.

Open to all, including those who may already identify as artists and those who might not, the Manchester Open will bring together artwork including paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, digital and mixed media, video and audio, spoken word, performance and more.

We welcome entries from people of any background and level of experience, including established professionals, new and emerging talent, enthusiastic amateurs and first-time artists.

We have now contacted all artists with the outcome of their submission to the Manchester Open 2022. If you have not heard back from us, please make sure you check your junk folder before getting in touch.
