Open Art Exhibition- Northumberland: Magic & Myth

Exhibition

Sat 15th February – Sun 19th April, Woodhorn Museum

For 2020, Woodhorn Museum's open art exhibition invites artists and audiences to explore and share what makes Northumberland magical.

Northumberland’s magic might be found in its landscapes, light, local legends or lore of the land.

The subject matter is open to interpretation by the artist, so expect the unexpected and to enjoy seeing a diverse range of subject matter and media.

Our popular annual open exhibitions showcase talented northern artists and celebrate our northern people and places.

Please contact wow@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk by Wednesday 22nd January if you are interested in submitting. We will not accept submissions after this date.

  • Artists may submit up to three works for consideration at a fee of £10 per work (non-refundable).
  • Artists must be able to deliver works for consideration to Woodhorn Museum on Saturday 25th January 2020 between the hours of 11am and 3pm. Works must be accompanied by a completed entry form and a signed copy of our terms and condition. Full payment will be taken upon delivery by cash or card.
  • The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  • Artists must be able to collect unselected work from Woodhorn Museum on Saturday 8th February 2020 between the hours of 11am and 3pm.
