Our biennial art competition will return in 2022. The Harley Open call for artists invites artists – whether professional or amateur – to submit their work for the chance to be included in this much-loved exhibition.

The Harley Open 2020 showed 124 pieces of art made by 102 different artists, all living and working within 100 miles of the gallery.

Will your artwork be on show in the 2022 Harley Open? And will you be one of our prize winners?

Open call for artists

We are looking for 2D or 3D wall-based works, in any style or medium.

Entries are accepted by artists aged 18 and over, from within 100 miles of the gallery (as the crow flies), and made within the last 2 years.

You can enter up to two works, and entries cost £10 per work.

If you are preparing work for this call for entries, please be aware that:

  • If your work is selected for the second round, you will need to be able to deliver it to The Harley Gallery on 29, 30 or 31 July 2022, ready for this final round of judging.
  • Your work will be hung using mirror plates. Please ensure that it is made / framed appropriately.
  • Your entry must be your own, original artwork.
  • Your artwork can be made available for sale.
