The Open Art show

Discover a welcoming venue that celebrates emerging artistic talent, accessible to all. Each Open Art Show revolves around an exciting theme, inspiring artists to submit imaginative and unique pieces.


Join us for a week-long exhibition featuring engaging talks, lively socials, networking opportunities, and a buzzing Opening Night!


Artworks are available for purchase at various price points, inviting first-time collectors to begin their own art journey.


We actively support and mentor first-time artists from the submission to the sales process. The Open Art Show fosters a nurturing environment to boost confidence, encourage connections with fellow creators, and share your art with the world.
