Every two years NN hosts an Open Exhibition. Every artist, be they professional, amateur or student at any stage in their career is welcome to apply to our Open. The judging panel for this instalment were Gareth Bell-Jones (Wysing Arts Centre) and Jennie Syson (SYSON Gallery).

The final exhibition was selected from the hundreds of applications and features work from artists living and working in Argentina to France, York to Sussex and many from Northampton and the county.

The launch of the Open also marks our first year in our new home at Number Nine Guildhall Road and so we are making the launch double as our birthday party, so come and celebrate with us on 12 December from 6pm.

We will close for the Christmas break from 23 December 2013 and reopen on 2 January 2014.
