The Rutland Youth Open 2017 is postponed to Autumn 2017. It will take place from October 14th to November 10th 2017.
The Rutland Open Youth Art Exhibition is for young people aged 11 to 18, and takes place at the Rutland County Museum in Oakham.
Starting last year as an offshoot of the successful and well-established Rutland Open Exhibition, it is aimed at young artists in Rutland – all young artists aged between 11 and 18 who live in Rutland, or are at school in Rutland, are eligible to enter, and works are accepted in the mediums of painting, drawing, ceramic, sculpture and textiles.
The theme for this year’s exhibition was ‘Can you see what I see?’. The private view took place on Friday evening, 5th February, when exhibitors and their parents and teachers gathered to see the work, and prizes were presented by the High Sheriff of Rutland, Andrew Brown, and the exhibition ran until Friday 4th March.
