by | 9 June 2024 | Art, Worksop

Artists are being invited to submit their work for the opportunity to be shown in the award-winning Harley Gallery, on the Welbeck estate.
If selected, their work will be put on display in the award-winning gallery from 27th July to 13th October. There’s also prizes up for grand, including the £2,500 grand prize, sponsored by The Harley Foundation.

The Harley Open Exhibition is a biennial competition which attracts an impressive range of artists.

Anyone can enter their work for consideration for the exhibition, whether you are professional or a hobbyist, experienced or just starting to make art. The only restrictions are that artists should be from within 100 miles of the Harley Foundation, and entries must be original, wall-based art, made in the last two years.

Lisa Gee, Director at The Harley Gallery, says “What makes the Open so exciting is the range of work that we get to see. It can be really hard to get your art shown in galleries and this exhibition levels the playing field. You don’t need a huge portfolio or exhibition list to get involved – you just need to send us some photos of your art. This means we get a brilliant, diverse range of art to exhibit, and emerging artists get an opportunity to show their work.”

Open Exhibition entrants have gone on to have their own solo shows both at The Harley Gallery and in other exhibition spaces.”

Entries to the Open Exhibition can be submitted on the Harley Foundation website: The deadline for submissions is 30th June. Entries cost £10.00 each, and artists can submit up to two artworks.
