    • Exhibition of leading contemporary British art comes to the heart of the City
    • NOA’s 20th exhibition to open for free from 27 October to 4 November

National Open Art is bringing its 20th Exhibition to the heart of the City this autumn.

Curated by Robin Muir, following his hugely successful curation of the National Portrait Gallery’s Vogue 100 earlier this year, this free exhibition at Mercers’ Hall will feature 160 selected paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, wall hung installations, digital art pieces and short films.

The artworks have been selected by an expert panel, including Robin and Royal Academician David Remfry, from thousands of pieces by the very best professional and amateur artists working today in the UK and Ireland.

More than £50,000 worth of prizes will be awarded to 35 artists, including for the hotly anticipated Best Emerging Artist and Best Young Artist Prizes, when Lord Mervyn Davies opens the exhibition on Thursday, 27 October.

Winners of NOA16’s children’s competition, judged by Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell, will also be announced when the exhibition opens.
