Junior Open Art Exhibition

News |

Visit Cleethorpes Library and celebrate young creative talent across North East Lincolnshire this January and February as part of the Junior Open Art Exhibition.

Back in November, Lincs Inspire challenged children aged 15 years and under to get creative for the chance to showcase their art in a professional gallery setting.

Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, the exhibition will bring these colourful and imaginative pieces to the public from Monday, 16th January to Saturday, 25th February.

Viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite piece, with prizes awarded to the winners of the public and judges’ votes. 

The exhibition is free to attend during Cleethorpes Library opening hours – Monday to Thursday, 8:30am to 5:30pm and Saturday, 9am to 1pm.
