Harris Open exhibition

Exhibition
9 December 2017 – 21 January 2018

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.

The Harris Open is sponsored by The Framing Guru which is offering 10% off picture framing for exhibitors.

All works entered go on display and many items are for sale; a unique opportunity to pick up a very special gift for friends and family. This year, artists have successfully used an even 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 - there is a huge variety of works to see. Don't miss it!

This years winners - chosen by the Harris judges - were announced on the preview night on 8 December - but you still have an opportunity to vote for your favourite work. Just pop into the gallery and put your people's favourite voting slip into one of the red postboxs. Winner to be announced on Saturday 13 January.
