Open Exhibition 2021: A Portrait of Northumberland

Exhibition

Sat 13th February – Sun 11th April, Woodhorn Museum

We're thrilled to announce the theme of our popular annual open exhibition at Woodhorn Museum in spring 2021 is 'A Portrait of Northumberland'.

Although the theme for the next open exhibition was planned pre-lockdown, we feel it resonates well with the situation we currently find ourselves in.

Many people are in a position where we might be limited to creating self-portraits, portraits of our lockdown companions, portraits of what we can see from our windows or portraits of our thoughts and feelings.

As ever, this theme is up to the interpretation of the individual artist and work can be created in any medium.

How to submit work:

  • Artists may submit up to three works for consideration at a fee of £10 per work (non-refundable).
  • Please e-mail wow@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk to register interest by Monday 7th December 2020. Please allow up to 7 working days to receive a reply.

Artwork Information:

  • Works must be by a living artist and completed in the last two years.
  • Wall-based work must be framed to a professional standard and include pre-attached wall fixings. Acceptable fixings include mirror plates and flush mounts. We will not accept works fitted with domestic wire/string fixings.
