Under the banner ‘Everyone’s An Artist’, HOME in Manchester launched a public exhibition back in 2020, asking the public to submit their own artwork for selection by a panel of experts and non-experts.
The result was the art centre’s most-visited exhibition, with more than 33,000 people packing the galleries to see 543 works of art by 451 artists.
Having been closed for more than a year, HOME has made the clever decision to bring the open-call exhibition back for 2022 and to make it a biannual event. Submissions will open to the public in June.
More than 2,000 people, including some established artists, submitted work for the 2020 exhibition and this time around the team at HOME are expecting even more to get involved.
Most of the work on display will be for sale, and there are prizes for the most popular pieces in the show. If you’ve always wanted to create something and have it displayed in a gallery, now’s your chance.
You'll be able to upload photographs of your work for consideration via a portal on the HOME website once submission opens, and it costs nothing to give it a go.
Submissions for the Manchester Open Exhibition 2020 open on Wednesday June 16. www.homemcr.org
