Northamptonshire’s artists are being invited to submit their artwork for Abington Park Museum’s popular open air art exhibition, which returns for its 56th year on 29 April.

Submissions for the Art in the Park exhibition are being accepted from Wednesday 1 February and are open to all artists living in the county. 

Interested artists can submit artwork of all kinds including prints, landscapes, seascapes, animals, collages, flowers, abstracts and pictures of Abington Park.

The Borough Council’s Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, Cllr Anna King, said, “The Art in the Park exhibition provides local artists with a fantastic opportunity to showcase and sell their work in Abington Park Museum’s courtyard, whilst bringing enjoyment to visitors of the town’s green spaces." 

“Last year, the exhibition displayed 88 pieces of artwork and we look forward to receiving more submissions for when the exhibition opens on Saturday 29 April.”

Application forms for artists wanting to submit work, are available from Northampton Museum & Art Gallery and Abington Park Museum from 1 February 2017 or online at Submissions close on Monday 17 April.
