Open Exhibition 2022: A Portrait of Northumberland

Exhibition

Sat 19th February – Sun 24th April, Woodhorn Museum

We're thrilled to announce that our annual open exhibition will return in 2022. Postponed from 2021, due to museum closures during the pandemic, the theme of the open exhibition 2022 is 'A Portrait of Northumberland'.

Although this theme was planned before the pandemic, we feel it resonates well with the situation we have found ourselves in over the past 18 months.  Over this time many people have found themselves in a position where they might be limited to creating self-portraits, portraits of lockdown companions, portraits of what we can see from our windows or portraits of our thoughts and feelings. Creativity has helped many people through this very challenging time, and we welcome the opportunity to share work made over the past two years.

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

If you are interested in submitting artwork to the exhibition, please email wow@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk by Monday 25th Oct.
