Still time to take part in Goole Museum's 7th Annual Open Art

Fri, 09 Oct 2020

Goole Museum's 7th Annual Open Art 2020 is up and running, but this year things are a little different. Instead of the usual dropping off days and independent judges, this year everyone's work will be included (although there will be limitations on what can be shown, and no explicit content will be allowed).

Goole Museum curator Debbie Hardy explained: "We have had a lots of entries into the exhibition during our first month, but there is still plenty of space for you to share your work with us.

"This year's ongoing submission dates mean you have until November to enter your work, so what are you waiting for? Whether you are a painter, photographer, sculptor or crafter, we would love to see what you have been creating.

"Just to remind you there are three ways to get involved: For those who are happy to visit the museum there are two choices. You can deliver your work and leave the display decisions to us; or you can bring in your artistic creations and work alongside us to decide where or how to display it. (Social distancing and maximum occupancy rules will of course be adhered to.)

"If an actual visit to our site is not for you, then you can send us a digital version of your work. These will be screened in a slideshow within the museum and also included in the online gallery and our website.

"Why not take this opportunity to have your work seen by a wider audience? Being creative has helped so many get through these difficult times, and it seems even more important this year to celebrate anything positive and uplifting."

Open Art will run to the end of the year. The team at Goole Museum are really keen for new art to be regularly added to the exhibition, so entries can be submitted throughout this time.
