After another two years flying by, the biennial exhibition The Open is back at Waterside Arts Centre. Two months of submissions from many artists, a long selection process, the work curated and finally a private view was held for the opening on 7th February 2014. The night started with a presentation and handing out awards for best in Trafford, highly commended and winners of 3rd, 2nd and 1st prizes.
The galleries were packed with guests filling the air with talking about the art over a glass of wine and within a few hours pieces of art were being snapped up and red stickered left right and centre or more to the point, Lauriston, Corridor and Bar galleries. With an eclectic mix of mixed media, etchings, pencil, acrylic, ceramic, sculpture and many more one off pieces, there’s no wonder there was a rush to buy.
The exhibition runs until 24th May 2014 and I’m sure there won’t be much left available by the end, so come over, have a look around and if you see something you like then get yourself some art red stickered.
Ends 24th May 2014
