The Old Chapel Kings Head Street CO12 3NS 3ER
Home of the 20cm x 20cm Open Exhibition
The Twenty by Twenty exhibitions have proved so popular we have to put it on every year. We have had entries from three year olds up to people in their nineties. These include submissions from Professional artists and massed entries from local groups. Many say the size is the encouragement as it is not daunting and enables the painter to have a bit of fun experimenting. The first year we had over 300 entries and last year 498 entered. We still have room for more so have a go! All entries are accepted as long as they measure 20cm by 20 cm including frames. This year we are accepting sculptures with a footprint of 20cm square.
