Dear artists,

Submissions for the annual Braintree Open Art Exhibition are now just a month away!

This year the exhibition is being hosted by Braintree Community Centre, and we will be accepting submissions on Friday 11th August, 10am – 7pm and Saturday 12th August, 10am – 2pm (or by arrangement). Please bring your work, entry form and fee to the Community Centre: 19-21 Bocking End, CM7 9AH.

The full terms and conditions, as well as a printable entry form can be found on the Community Centre’s website, here:

To help fund the Open, we have arranged “Art on a Card” – an auction of donated postcard-sized artworks. We are holding an online auction on Braintree Community Centre’s Facebook page, which can be found here:

We will also be auctioning some of the artworks at the First View of the Open Art Exhibition on Friday the 18th August. We would be extremely grateful for any online bids, and would love to see you at the First View.

Thank you to any of you who have donated artworks!
