The Birmingham Open Art Show runs from 10th Feb to 29th April in the Gas Hall and features 150 works by emerging local talent from the West Midlands. The art was selected by a panel of judges comprising of Kathleen Soriano, (from gallery Compton Verney), Terry Grimley (Arts Editor at the Birmingham Post) and Max Kandhola (Photographic Studies at Nottingham Trent University)
As well as being open to the public works will be available for sale and prizes will be awarded. The best in show is Â£1000 while the five categories (oil/acrylics, paper, watercolour, 3D and time-based) get Â£250 each.
Obviously the deadline for entering has passed but you might be interested in the entry form since this is the first of a planned annual event.
