HOME believes that everyone’s an artist. Manchester Open Exhibition’s major open-entry art show celebrates the creative talent of Greater Manchester residents.  It is the first region-wide exhibition of its type to have welcomed entries from people of any background and level of experience, including established professionals, new and emerging talent, enthusiastic amateurs and first-time artists.


A panel of art experts and community representatives selected works from 500+ Greater Manchester residents. A whopping fourteen Venture Arts artists were selected to exhibit a range of artworks in the exhibition, which you can view in the gallery on this page.


Some of our exhibiting artists have chosen their personal highlights from the HOME Open. You can read more here.​
