Gallery Oldham is inviting local artists to submit work as entries for the popular ‘Oldham Open’.

This exhibition, which will run from September 28 to November 16, promises to be a visual feast with the Gallery welcoming work from local talents in a variety of media including drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, film and video.

Joy Thorpe, exhibition curator, said: “Pick up your paintbrush, get out that sketchbook and start snapping with that camera. If you live, work or study in Oldham then this is your chance to show your work as part of an exciting exhibition at Gallery Oldham. It’s all about celebrating the creativity and talents of the Borough, which we hope to do by showcasing work by a wide range of artists with different interests.”

Local artists should submit work, along with a completed entry form, between August 29 and September 7 at the Gallery Oldham reception desk (between 10am and 4pm daily).

Anyone wanting to submit work that may have special requirements, such as a large, heavy sculpture or a video installation, should contact the Gallery by August 14 at the latest to discuss installation.

If you are interested in submitting an entry, please get in touch with Gallery Oldham on 0161 770 4653 or email for further details and an entry form.

Only artists who live, study or work in the Borough are eligible to take part in this exhibition.

The Oldham Open is not only an exciting event for artists but also represents a great opportunity for visitors to the Gallery to see a showcase of the range of local skills and talents.
