As part of our Royal Academy 250 celebrations, we launched an exciting opportunity open to all artists living, working, studying or were born in Salford to show their work as part of this exhibition, inspired by the Royal Academy's annual Summer Exhibition.

Each artwork was selected on artistic merit by a group of judges including an external art curator. The Salford Open will take place every other year, so get creative for 2020! Come along to see the wealth of artistic talent in Salford today!
