The Red House Open Art Exhibition is a premier showcase of visual arts by amateur and professional artists from Dorset, Hampshire and beyond. 

This year’s guest judges are artist and Dorset Arts Weeks producer, Paul Newman and Jo Dyton, owner of Hatch Gallery in Christchurch.

All artwork is available for sale and purchasing artwork from the event is a great way to support both local artists and the museum. 

This year's Open Art will be part of Dorset Arts Weeks, taking place between 14 - 29 May 2022.
