The Harris Open is a fresh and vibrant exhibition full of positivity and colour and is guaranteed to give a boost to get rid of those winter blues!
The exhibition gives Preston residents from a 5 mile radius of the Harris, a chance to unite and show Harris visitors what they are made of. Artists from all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience - from just for fun to professional practicing artists - are invited to submit one or two artworks they have created in the last 2 years and not previously shown at the Harris. It is a brilliant way to be a part of something big and feel connected to like-minded people.
There is also the option to sell your work – the Harris takes a 30% commission.
Traditionally, we have encouraged submissions of wall based 2 dimensional art work, but this year we would like to try even harder to represent the rich cultural diversity of Preston and encourage you to submit a variety of art forms as diverse as you like! For example digital, sound, performance, installation, along with the more traditional art forms of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, textiles, and ceramics.
