Open exhibitions

We stage on average two open exhibitions per year at Orleans House Gallery, Stables Gallery and Riverside Gallery. These exhibitions showcase mixed works in a variety of media and themes. Forthcoming open opportunities are advertised on these pages, as well as in the art press.

Botanical Beauty: Botanical art open (25 February - 1 April 2017)

We are seeking artwork in a range of media inspired by botanical illustration.

Botanical illustration is the art of depicting the form, colour and details of a plant species. Although scientifically accurate, studies are often artistic and aesthetically pleasing. This tradition of marrying art with science goes back to the 6th century when the first botanical illustrations were created. The heyday of botanical art was from the 17th to the 19th century. In recent years, there has been a renaissance in this genre. This open exhibition showcases contemporary British botanical illustrations in a variety of styles.

  • Deadline for submissions: Monday 2 January 2017
  • Submissions should be sent to: Orleans House Gallery, Riverside, Twickenham, TW1 3DJ

A Personal Portrait: Photography open (8 April - 13 May 2017)

We are seeking photographic portraits of people in a variety of styles.

Since photography was invented in the 19th century, portraiture has been an important and popular genre of this medium.

This open exhibition brings together work by photographers from across the UK exploring different approaches to the theme - from formal studio studies, photographs commemorating significant life events, candid shots of subjects snapped on the streets and self-portraits.
