New Forest Open Art Exhibition – Call for Submissions

The ever popular New Forest Open Art Exhibition, sponsored by ExxonMobil Fawley, is now in its seventh year. The New Forest with its timeless beauty continues to inspire artists of all ages and to attract painters, sculptures and photographers from across the region. 

Entrants are now being sought, with the closing date for submission set as Monday 1 July. Entrants can submit up to three items each, and works must relate to the New Forest and have been created since July 2016. Full details of how to enter can be found at 

The exhibition is a curated display of selected works from the New Forest Open Art Competition and a chance to see the prize winning pieces. Visitors will also have the opportunity to vote for their own favourite piece of work. As many pieces are for sale, the Open Art Exhibition also affords visitors the opportunity to own a piece of their very own New Forest inspired artwork!
