Wiltshire Creative - SUMMER EXHIBITION 2022 

12th July- 3rd September 2022 

Wiltshire Creative is a pan-arts organisation that celebrates the distinctiveness of each art form and the opportunities afforded by their interaction. Operating across two venues: Salisbury Playhouse and Salisbury Arts Centre, we champion work which is diverse and current; work which comments on important stories to audiences in the county and further afield.

As part of the Visual Arts programme our Summer Open Exhibition provides the perfect opportunity for us to showcase work that has been created locally. Building on the success of our previous Summer Open Exhibitions, we are once more providing a platform for the talent which flourishes in Southwest England.
