New Forest Open Art ExhibitionOpen Art 2018

14 July to 8 September, 9.30am - 4.30pm. Free entry.

Showcasing the best of the creative New Forest, our Open Art Exhibition returns for a 6th year!

Run in partnership with the National Park Authority and sponsored by ExxonMobil, this free exhibition is open daily throughout the Summer and even gives you the opportunity to vote for your favourite piece of artwork.

Hilary Marshall, New Forest Centre Manager, said: ‘The annual Open Art competition Exxon Logois a firm favourite with visitors and local artists alike, showcasing the great artistic talent within the Forest. The standard and diversity of artwork entered is increasing year on year and I am sure our competition judges will have a hard task ahead of them. We are delighted to be working with both the New Forest National Park Authority and ExxonMobil at the Fawley Refinery again to help support and encourage work within the creative community.’ npa logo
