Artists call up for Gallery’s showcase open exhibition

Entries are now being sought for the popular annual Harrogate Open Exhibition, to be held at the town’s Mercer Art Gallery In June.

The event, which offers a chance for people to have their work on view and for sale at the prestigious venue, has a prize fund of £1,200.

The selectors for entrants into this year’s exhibition will be Yorkshire artists Tom Wood and Jake Attree, and Jane Sellars, Harrogate’s Curator of Cultural Services.

Jane Sellars said: ”We are delighted to have two such distinguished artists as our selectors for 2017, both of whom are great supporters.”
