Following a busy Summer, West Acre Gallery is hosting its second annual open exhibition this autumn.

The event, taking place between October 22 and 31, will feature 23 artists and more than 70 items on display at their gallery on Abbey Farm.

Artists have been invited to submit up to 5 pieces of work, of any medium, 2D or 3D to feature in the show.

The Crowdfunded art gallery, set on a working farm in the village, is connected strongly within the local community, which is also home to an energetic art scene, with 14 exhibitions this year, and several art fairs, wellness classes, creative workshops and educational sessions for children in between.

People will also have the chance to meet the artists over the course of 10 days, as each takes up their post invigilating the event.
