People who have saved this event:


The Harris Open is a fresh and vibrant annual exhibition that gives the people of Preston a chance to shine!


Artists from all backgrounds and all levels of experience, including professional, are invited to submit one or two of their most recent works to go on display, with children welcome to take part too.

Share your artistic skills with the whole city!

All works entered will go on display and many items will be on sale; a unique opportunity to pick up a very special gift for friends and family. This year the Harris is particularly keen to see artists using a wider range of 'art mediums' to fully showcase the city's creative talents. From sculpture to paint, 3D work to ceramics, embroidery to photography and film - anything goes! This year we are asking for voluntary donations to our charity, the Friends of the Harris (Reg. Charity 503726), who support a wide range of the Harris' work including helping local artists. To find out more about the Friends, go to www.thebiggive.org.uk and search for 'Friends of the Harris' .

If you would like to enter work (don't be shy!) bring it along on the dates below. Up to two pieces of work are permitted with every entry form. The 'Artwork Hand In' is at the Harris into the top floor galleries. Download the entry form or pick up a form from the museum shop.
