This year’s Harris Open exhibition is preparing to adorn the walls of the city’s main gallery.Advertisement
An annual celebration of the arts in the city sees dozens of artists have their work displays – the only condition being you must live or study within a five-mile radius of the Harris to be able to take part.
There’s a final call for entries with the deadline being Saturday (1 December) at 4pm to hand in your work.
For the public, there’s a first chance to see on Friday (7 December) from 5.30pm at the Harris.
The exhibition then opens formally on Saturday 8 December.
Art, photography and much more will be scattered across the city’s galleries.
Cabinet member for culture and leisure councillor Peter Kelly said: “This popular exhibition really showcases Preston’s creative talents and is a fabulous opportunity for artists of all ages to have their work go on display to the public.
“The Harris Open is always one of our most popular exhibitions and its a great way to feel connected with like-minded people.”
The exhibition will run until Sunday 20 January.
It costs £3 for adults to enter their work into the Harris open, and its free for under-18s.
