2018 Amateur Open Exhibition




A selection of up to 70 artists will be chose to exhibit one piece of art work from photography, painting, sculpture and design for a two week exhibition at Storm Art Gallery.

Storm Art Gallery wants to celebrate the work of up and coming artists and allow them to experience having their work hung, exhibited and on sale. Storm Art started in April 2017 and has always wanted to approach and encourage new artists and crafts people. They host workshops, studios and exhibitions on a regular basis allowing for professionals to pass on skills and techniques.

They want to celebrate and support all artists with creating a future for themselves as professionals.

One artist will be selected to have a private exhibition at a later time and win £100 worth of digital scanning and art printing voucher.
