Saturday 18 February - Monday 8 May 2023
Housed in Woodhorn Museum’s stunning Workshop Galleries, the annual Northumberland Open is the largest exhibition of its type in Northumberland. The exhibition attracts submissions from artists from across Northumberland and beyond. Works are selected for exhibition by a professional panel of artists and curators who also selected an Overall Winner and Highly Commended artists to be awarded prizes.
During the exhibition run, thousands of visitors have the opportunity to vote for the ‘People’s Choice’ award. The theme for our 2023 Open Exhibition is ‘Wild Northumberland’, inspired by Northumberland’s wild and unique landscapes, wildlife, weather and local characters. As ever, this theme is open to the interpretation of the individual artist.
