The leading independent open art prize, National Open Art (NOA), will be exhibiting diverse cross-section of the brightest British and Irish contemporary art, photography and film in this vast, untouched four-story industrial building on London’s South Bank. The NOA exhibition is one of several artistic spectacles taking place at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf over this period, and will be situated alongside architect and interior designer, Househam Henderson’s transformational vision of Gallery 1. Also on display will be highlights from their charity partner, the House of Fairy Tales’ beautiful interactive Clock Work Garden, and works from NOA Vice President Gavin Turk’s Turkish Tulips Exhibition. Further creative inspiration will also feature throughout, from artists in residence to educational workshops, tours, talks, an interactive installation, opening and closing parties and much more!
About National Open Art
National Open Art (NOA) is the UK and Ireland’s leading independent art competition, open to amateur and professional artists, photographers and filmmakers’ resident in the UK and Ireland. Since their first competition and exhibition in 1996, they’ve grown to offer multiple prizes that recognise talent and artistic excellence in a broad variety of artistic mediums and styles. Their panel of judges changes annually and features some of the most experienced and influential figures in the art world, from Royal Academicians to critics, curators and professionals.
NOA now attracts more than 4,000 entries per year and they offer both shortlisted and winning artists exposure and income opportunities through their exhibitions and online art sales platform. By working hard to expand the scale and scope of the competition, they aim to give all UK and Irish artists a gateway to exhibit and promote their work, regardless of background, and encourage them to pursue a life in art.
Art worth collecting
They really stand out from the art selling crowd because every piece of art they sell has been specially selected by a panel of expert judges. Clients are therefore assured of the quality and investment potential of their artwork.
Buying from NOA brings benefits that go beyond pure art appreciation and enjoyment. You’re supporting an artist, boosting their confidence and helping to develop their career. What’s more, you’ll also be supporting an arts charity – National Open Art – dedicated to furthering the arts industry by promoting and encouraging UK and Irish artists.Return
