1-31 December 2011
The Open Exhibition is the final exhibition of the year and also the final
exhibition in the Fishmarket Gallery's current building before it is demolished
as part of the town centre's redevelopment.
The Open Exhibition was selected by Anthony Spira, director of MK Gallery
and Darren Banks, an artist based in Northamptonshire who had a solo
exhibition at Fishmarket in May. Over a hundred works were submitted and the
judges selected work by artists young and old, local and further afield,
students, amateurs and professionals.
“It has been a pleasure to head the panel of judges for Fishmarket’s Open
Exhibition this year. It was great to see such a diverse range of
applicants for what promises to be an enjoyable final exhibition.”

“It's an honour to be included in the final Fishmarket exhibition. I've
always admired their dedication towards arts and culture in Northampton
and feel their contribution has been invaluable. It will be a proud moment
to see my work on display and I hope the Fishmarket will continue to
support the arts in Northamptonshire long after the venue has changed.”
