Harris Open Exhibition 2017

Harris Open 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 take part in our annual open art show. We welcome entries in any media - including audio, installation, video painting, sculpture, textiles, ceramics and more. So embrace your chance to shine and exhibit your work at the Harris this year!

Entry details coming soon.


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!

And this year why not have your work professionally framed?

Expert local framer, The Framing Guru is offering a 10% discount on all framing services for Harris Open exhibitors.
