Goole Museum holds an Open Art each summer, open to all artists from the area, and up to two pieces in any medium can be entered. Paintings, drawings, photos, textile work, sculpture and digital creations all featured this year. The museum team have announced that Open Art will return in 2019.
Debbie Hardy, curator of Goole Museum, said: “We automatically send out entry forms to all the people who entered the previous year’s Open Art. Unfortunately we had quite a few visitors this year saying they would have loved to have entered but didn’t realise it was on.
“So for anyone who would like a form sending out nearer the time, please visit www.eastridingmuseums.co.uk and click on the link for Goole Museum and ‘contact us’.”
“You can then relax knowing you will not miss out, and you now have plenty of time to create your masterpiece!
Visitors to the 2018 exhibition were asked to vote for their favourite artwork, and the People’s Choice winner, Matthew Beck, received a voucher for free framing at Gallery Framing of Pasture Road.
Debbie Hardy added : ““So, if you are artistic and would like the chance to have one of your artworks framed for free, what are you waiting for?”
