It’s just a few days until Macclesfield’s biggest community art exhibition is unveiled.
The fourth Macclesfield Open Art Exhibition opens at the Silk Museum on Saturday, December 10, with a collection of almost 200 carefully chosen works of art.
It will include the work of aspiring artists of all ages and disciplines, and is a fantastic opportunity for local people a chance to show off their creativity.
Vicky Griffiths, from the museum, said: “Last year, artists from Cheshire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire and even further afield submitted around 300 pieces for consideration.
“There are no themes for entrants to follow, ensuring a vibrant and varied range of subject matter and technique. The quality of works has improved year on year, so 2016’s exhibition is set to be outstanding.”
Entrants to this year’s exhibition include Aidan Ingham, who emigrated to Melbourne, Australia from Macclesfield, but has still submitted his work to be included.
There are also five awards to be won, including the Visitors Choice Award, which will be decided by a public vote.
Although charges apply to visit the Silk Museum, admission to the exhibition, which runs until January 21, is free.
