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.

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.

Tricks of the Light: open exhibition (25 November - 13 January 2018)

We are seeking artwork in a range of media examining and exploring the interplay and effects of light in art.

For centuries, artists have attempted to capture the effects of light - from the dramatic chiaroscuro works of 16th century artist Caravaggio, to the colourful, vibrant plein air oils of the 19th century French Impressionists.
