The Junior Open exhibition has been held annually at the Ferens Art Gallery since 2004. It celebrates the creative talent of young people in Hull and the surrounding area. Artworks are submitted by individuals, schools and local community groups, aged 15 and under. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold the 2020 Junior Open exhibition on site, instead we have provided a digital platform for children and young people with our very first digital Junior Open.
The digital Junior Open showcases the creativity of children and young people throughout 2020. This online exhibition celebrates and champions children’s creativity in the face of the pandemic. This digital exhibition reflects young peoples’ experiences of 2020, their hopes and dreams – and simply their love of making art!
We hope you enjoy exploring our very first digital Junior Open.
…and don’t worry, we are we are still planning for an exhibition at the gallery in 2021. Keep an eye out for more updates to come.
