This year’s popular annual open art exhibition at Touchstones Rochdale celebrates the artistic talent of the Borough with a local twist!

For this year’s competition, we are looking for submissions which can be turned in to postcards to promote our wonderful Borough including Rochdale, Middleton, Heywood, Pennines Townships.
The exhibition will feature all entries and some examples of postcards from our collection, the scenic alongside the weird and wonderful! All mediums are encouraged as long and they are original and received as postcard size. Entries cost £5 per postcard for adults and £2 per postcard for under 18’s and full time students. Individuals can submit multiple artworks to the exhibition.
There’s an added incentive for our artistic community this year: a number of prizes, a chance to sell your work and entrants will also have the opportunity to donate their artworks to the Local Studies Archive, ensuring that the work is kept for future generations to enjoy.
