Running over six weeks and inviting the submission of greetings cards and other affordable works, we hope the exhibition will continue it’s popularity with audiences, and with the anticipation of a busy Winter “staycation” season, also welcome new visitors to experience this exciting annual show.
Given continued uncertainty we’re taking the big step to support visual arts in South Devon by making submissions to this years’ English Riviera Winter Open exhibition absolutely free.
Our Annual Christmas Show, More Important Than Ever...
After a month of virtual activity, the English Riviera Winter Open Exhibition is about to get physical as we look forward to reopening the gallery at the end of Lockdown 2.0!
With over 100 participating artists and 300 works, on December 2nd, this needs to be the first stop on your Christmas shopping trips. This huge collection including one-off original artworks, highly collectible sculpture and unique gifts has something for everyone, whether you're looking small for a stocking filler, or going big for a Christmas treat to yourself.
Opening hours have been extended to make the most of the final weeks before Christmas so you'll be able to join us seven days a week from 10am every day, and to celebrate the first week we'll also be offering you the chance to book exclusive preview sessions with us.
These sessions are by reservation only and are a chance to enjoy the exhibition at a quieter pace with access to the gallery directors and visiting artists.
A limited number of tickets are available per session to meet COVID-Secure restrictions and we ask that all attendees wear a mask as per requirements when visiting a retail outlet.
This will be our final show of 2020 and we very much look forward to welcoming you to it over the coming weeks.
