Artist Call

Housed in Woodhorn Museum’s stunning Workshop Galleries, the annual Northumberland Open is the largest exhibition of its type in Northumberland. The exhibition attracts submissions from artists from across Northumberland and beyond. Works are selected for exhibition by a professional panel of artists and curators who also selected an Overall Winner and Highly Commended artists to be awarded prizes. During the exhibition run, thousands of visitors have the opportunity to vote for the ‘People’s Choice’ award.

Dates of the Northumberland Open Exhibition 2023: Wild Northumberland is Saturday 18th February 2023 to Sunday 16th April 2023

Artist information and how to register:

The theme for our 2023 Open Exhibition is ‘Wild Northumberland’, inspired by Northumberland’s wild and unique landscapes, wildlife, weather and local characters. As ever, this theme is open to the interpretation of the individual artist.

Artists are welcome to submit up to three artworks for exhibition for a (non-refundable) fee of £10 per artwork. Submission is in-person only and takes place over 2-3 days in January 2023 (dates TBC). We are currently working to ensure Covid-safety for all staff and visitors and therefore exact submission information including dates will be provided to registered artists nearer the time.

If you would like to receive more information about submitting work to the Northumberland Open 2023, please register your interest by e-mailing wow@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk. The deadline for registration is Wednesday 30th November 2022. After registration closes, you will be e-mailed full information about the submission process and 2023 exhibition.
