Would you like to see your work on display in Mottisfont's gallery? Applications are now open for the Mottisfont Open Exhibition, on show 15 September - 11 November 2018. Closing date 6 July 2018.

Our Open Exhibition is a popular fixture in Mottisfont's calendar, giving any artist the opportunity to display work in our gallery. There's no theme this year, and works can be in any medium - the result is usually an interesting mix of styles.

This year's works will be selected by a panel of directors and curators of art galleries in the local area: Tim Craven, Curator at Southampton City Art Gallery; Faye Perkins, Arts Development Officer at Test Valley Borough Council; Ros Carter, Head of Exhibitions at John Hansard Gallery; and David Dixon, Artist & Director of Chapel Arts Studios in Andover.
