NOA. National Open Art, is a registered charity formed to provide a positive presence in the art world. We operate both regionally and nationally, and run the annual Open Art Competition which results in The National Open Art Exhibition, held in London and other major cities around the UK and Ireland.


Through the delivery of the competition we encourage artists to produce and exhibit their works and provide an opportunity for artists to sell their work, and for the public to enjoy and buy affordable art. We also work to support our artists providing advice, support, networking opportunities and connections.


We are also passionate and excited about our next generation of artists and want to nurture and encourage children and young people of all ages and capabilities to apply their imaginations and get creative! With start-up funding from the Foyle Foundation, we have launched a dedicated Children’s Open Art competition, to encourage and inspire children from all corners of the UK and Eire to engage, look, learn, draw, paint, create and make. One of the most incredible, awe-inspiring attributes children have is their ability to be free and create without boundaries.


It is worth noting that all events held by our charity, including the National Open Art Prize and exhibitions, are primarily to raise funds for the benefit of the charity to enable it to fulful its aims and objectives.


Please join our supporters. With your help we can continue to provide this much needed platform and support for artists of all ages.
