Call for entries for Melbourne Open

This year the Melbourne Festival Open Exhibition is being held in May ahead of the town’s annual festival in September.

For many years the Open Exhibition has been part of the Art and Architecture Trail but this year organisers have decided to separate the two events to shine a brighter spotlight on the artists who take part in the open.

The exhibition will still be curated by members of the festival team and is a great opportunity for artists to promote their work and for the public to buy original art at great prices.

The call for entries from artists wishing to take part closes on May 16.

It will be open to the public on May 28 and 29 at Melbourne Assembly Rooms in the High Street.
