Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery announced its 2024 second ever Art Open exhibition programme.

It’s an open call to all artists, amateur and professional, to submit their work for what promises to be an exciting and diverse show.

It is also a chance for artists to showcase their work and the exhibition programme has also been welcomed by Councillor Quesir Mahmood, Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Growth and Development.

Cllr Mahmood, said:

This is a fantastic opportunity for artists to take part in and have the chance to have their work recognised in such a rich area for arts, culture and heritage.

It is an opportunity for all artists to submit their work and we are lucky to have this second open call in the borough to showcase more talent.

I would encourage all artists to get involved so that they don’t miss this great chance to have their artwork in Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery.
