Young People’s work to go on display in Ferens Art Gallery

The Ferens Art Gallery, Hull.

Artists aged 15 or under can show off their talents at this year’s Ferens Art Gallery’s Junior Open.

This exciting opportunity offers children a chance to see their artwork on display with the renowned Ferens Art Gallery permanent collection and a chance to win a prize.

The artworks selected will be shown in an exhibition in Ferens Art Gallery’s Studio Space from 30 November until 26 January 2020.

The exhibition has been kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Ferens and The Hull and East Riding branch of The Art Society, who will provide prizes for the winning entries.

Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, chair of Hull Culture and Leisure, said: “The Junior Open provides a great opportunity for young artists to show work in their local gallery alongside established artists from the permanent collection. Encouraging creativity at all stages of life is vital to the Ferens. It’s important that children’s talents and interests in art are nurtured and celebrated.”
