2014 Open Open: 26th July - 6th September

If you are bursting with creativity, then the 2014 Open Open invites budding artists and enthusiasts, amateur and professional, from anywhere and any age, to bring along a piece of their art work for exhibition at the Swiss Cottage Gallery.

Running from 26th July – 6th September, this is our fourth Open Open and is a wonderful chance to exhibit your work for free in a contemporary gallery in central London. The idea behind the exhibition is that anyone can bring their work to the Gallery to be hung professionally.

Registration is simple and friendly: simply turn up, complete a short form and hang your work. The Hanging Days are held at Swiss Cottage Gallery on:

Saturday 26 July 12-4pm,

Saturday 2 August 12-4pm

Saturday 9 August 12-4pm

Full details including submission guidelines, information on volunteering for the Open Open and contact details for more information available here.
