February 20, 2023

Goole Museum is looking for artists and creative people living in and around Goole to submit artwork for their annual Open Art Exhibition.

The Exhibition, which is in it’s ninth year, will return from March 25 to May 27. It celebrates the creativity of local amateur and professional artists, and provides an exciting opportunity for members of the community to display and sell their artwork. Previous exhibitions have seen a fascinating array of artwork, including impressive paintings and photography.

The museum also welcomes textiles, as well as sculptures and ceramics. Curator, Dr Alex Ombler, said: “We’re very excited to welcome local artists to submit their artwork for the 2023 Open Art Exhibition at Goole Museum. “Last year, we displayed the work of some immensely talented artists from around Goole and we’d like to encourage entrants in past exhibitions to come back and display their artwork. “We’d also like to invite new entrants to submit their work at the museum, which is a very friendly and welcoming place. “The gallery for our temporary exhibitions is a great space to showcase and/or sell your work.”

To enter either: • Pick up an entry form from the museum on Carlisle Street, Goole. • Leave your details at the museum, or call 01405 768963 and the museum team will send you a form. • Email: The dates for dropping off artwork are March 7-11 and 14-18, 10:30am-4pm.
