The Open Gallery is looking for artworks on the theme of 'History Present Future' for an exhibition in August/September 2024. This exhibition provides artists with a great opportunity to get greater exposure by exhibiting their work at the Open Gallery in front of a new audience.

The Open Gallery is looking for artists to display 2D and 3D artworks in our Gallery space in Halifax. The gallery is open Tuesday - Saturday 11 am - 4 pm. The exhibition will run from 6th August - 7th September 2024.

Artists are invited to produce and submit original work on the theme of 'History Present Future'.

We will accept artwork from any individual artist who lives/works in the UK and will be able to deliver and pick up their artwork to/from the gallery.

Any two-dimensional and 3D artwork can be submitted through curatorspace.com; the work can be in any media: painting, sculpture, photography, textile,  jewellery, artists' books, mixed media, etc, on the theme of 'History Present Future'.

To Apply:

  • Free to apply. If accepted, there will be a participation fee of £40 per artist.  
  • Provide a short description of your work (250 words maximum) and how it is connected to the theme 'History Present Future’. It will be published in the art catalogue.
  • Price (if you would like to sell it): if your work is not for sale, please state NFS.
  • Size measurements: if work is framed, then the size of the frame is in cm.
  • Three artworks.

The work can be offered for sale during the exhibition; there will be a commission charge of 20% of the sale price of each piece of art to cover the admin costs.

If accepted, your work will be exhibited in the gallery space, on the Open Gallery's website, and on social media channels, and it will be published in the art catalogue.
