Artists are invited to take part in ArtCare’s Annual Open Exhibition – download our information pack and entry form – this contains all the details to submitting work on Friday 26th April (10am-4pm) and Saturday 27th (10am –12noon) at the ArtCare Office (see the map in our information pack). We have added a weekend drop off times for those working and parking is quieter.

The ArtCare Open is always an exhibition with works of outstanding quality, selected fairly from a large number of entries. The Open exhibition is a great way to showcase your work with nearly 4000 staff and tens-of-thousands of weekly visitors seeing work along the hospital corridors. Remember too that all money raised from entry fees, as well as commissions on sales, supports the ArtCare project which is funded by charitable contributions. The art service is widely appreciated by patients, staff and visitors alike and we very much hope that you will support our work again with a submission of your works.

Entries will be chosen for the final exhibition and an overall winner will receive a prize of £300 and an opportunity to exhibit later in the year. There will also be two runners-up prizes of £150 kindly sponsored by Salisbury Hospital League of Friends.

The selection process will take place on Tuesday 30th April by a panel of judges from a variety of arts and healthcare backgrounds.

We are able to exhibit approximately 100 works in total. The Open is always a highlight in our exhibition calendar with good levels of interest and sales.
