Fancy yourself as an artist?

Gallery Oldham invites you to show your artwork as part of an exciting exhibition taking place in September.

Pick up your paintbrush, fire up the kiln and get snapping with that camera. This is your chance to showcase your work as part of The Oldham Open 2019.

The biennial exhibition started in 2003 and has been running successfully ever since. This year it begins on Friday 20 September and runs until Saturday 30 November and is open to artists of all ages who live, work or study in Oldham.

Artists may submit one or two pieces of work to the Gallery. A variety of media, such as drawings, paintings, photographs, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, film and video will be accepted. Previous submissions will not be accepted.


Councillor Mohon Ali, Deputy Cabinet Member for Education and Culture, said: “This is a great opportunity for local artists, both well-known and undiscovered, to showcase their latest masterpieces.

“It’s important that we celebrate the artistic talents of Oldham residents and I look forward to seeing the chosen pieces when the exhibition opens in September.”

Local artists should submit work – along with a completed entry form – between 5–7 September at the Gallery Oldham reception desk (from 10am­­–4pm daily). Works should be delivered ready for display with any necessary fixings.

Entry forms can be downloaded at
