Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery is excited to be holding its very first ART OPEN!

Our first ever Art Open launches this Autumn! In August we put out an open call to all artists, amateur and professional, to get ready to submit their work for what promises to be an exciting and diverse art show. We are thrilled to have artist and ceramic sculptor Halima Cassell on this year’s judging panel, as well as our own Anthea Purkis and Leader of the Council, Cllr Phil Riley. (Winners in the Image Gallery below) The Art Open opens on Saturday 1st October, with the official prize giving at 2pm. The exhibition is on until 7th Jan 2023 and will be open 12-4.45pm Wednesday -Saturday. The Friends are supporting this event and members have been helping with the administration of entries.
