“No Jury, No Prize” is an entirely un-juried exhibition which, since its inception during the City of Culture 2013, has become the largest showcase of local art in the North West region.
This year it is being hosted by the Alley Theatre Gallery. The exhibition is inspired by the artistic experimentation and egalitarian ethos that emerged out of the Salon des Refusés and the Société des Artistes Indépendants in 19th century Paris. This democratic expression of art is related to a wish for people to realize the power of creativity in effecting positive changes in their lives.
“No Jury No Prize” is open to all artists over the age of 17 – both amateur and professional – who can submit one piece. Artwork is shown on condition that it does not breach copyright or cause offence. Further entry details will be advertised closer to the exhibition dates.
