The West Midlands Open exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate the quality and diversity of the visual arts in the region and will take place at The New Art Gallery Walsall, in our spacious Floor 3 galleries from 20 May – 25 September 2022.
The ambition of the Open is to exhibit artists from across the West Midlands, to showcase the talent from the region and to provide selling opportunities for artists. We are keen to present a diverse range of artworks that are representative of and relevant to our broad communities and audiences.
