Derbyshire Open Art Competition 2018

The Derbyshire Open is an annual competition, now in its 36th year, and is open to both amateur and professional artists.


Pavilion Reflection by Mark Langley

Competition entrants were asked to capture an image of what Derbyshire means to the artist. The subject could have been a landscape, a view of the artist's home town, local people, representations of local legends or still life. Entrants could use most mediums, including oils, acrylics, watercolours, drawing, print, collage, manipulated digital imagery or three-dimensional work.

Judging by an independent panel took place on Monday 11 June and a list of the winning entry numbers can be found attached to this page. Prizes include a £750 first prize - along with the opportunity to display work at our Museum and Art Gallery in Buxton. Prizes will be awarded at the preview evening and awards ceremony on Friday 22 June 2018.

For more information email: buxton.museum@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 01629 533540.

The judges' selection including the winning pieces will go on display at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery from Saturday 23 June until Friday 31 August 2018 at 4pm.
