Manchester Open Exhibition 2020

Everyone’s an artist

NEWSFLASH: We’ve had an incredible number of submissions for the very first Manchester Open – over 2,000! Click here to read more and find out what’s happening next.

At HOME, we believe that everyone’s an artist. That’s why we’re launching the Manchester Open Exhibition – a major open-entry art show celebrating the creative talent of Greater Manchester residents.

From January to March 2020, the 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.

This is the first region-wide exhibition of its type to welcome entries from people of any background and level of experience, including established professionals, new and emerging talent, enthusiastic amateurs and first-time artists. Applicants can submit as an individual or a group via an online application form.

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
