21st National Open Art Winners' Exhibition

Pallant House Gallery Chichester | 6 - 17 December 2017


As a grand finale, National Open Art will be taking the winners of the 21st National Open Art Competition to be hung in a two-week exhibition at the national critically acclaimed Pallant House Gallery in Chichester, where the competition was founded 20 years ago.


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 fulfil its aims and objectives.


"One of the most important galleries for British modern art in the country" - Adrian Tahourdin, Times Literary Supplement



"The collection is a revelation"

Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times


Pallant House Gallery is home to one of the best collections of Modern British art in the UK, with works by Henry Moore, Walter Sickert, Ben Nicholson, Eduardo Paolozzi and Peter Blake.


The core of this ‘collection of collections' is Modern British art, but other artworks figure such at the Bow Porcelain of the Geoffrey Freeman Collection. Each group of works has been formed by different collectors and different impulses and lends its own character to the collection, making the experience of Pallant House Gallery engaging, insightful and unique.
