The NAE Open returns this summer presenting painting, drawing, video, live art, photography, textiles and sculpture. This dynamic exhibition was created through a competitive, open application process for Nottinghamshire based artists and Global Majority artists living anywhere in the UK.

A noted judging panel chose from over 300 submissions. The result is a collection of over 45 artworks which speak to the critical issues of the day. These range from racism, identity politics, misogyny, and the immigration crisis, to environmental concerns and the ongoing impact of the global pandemic.

The NAE Open is a platform that supports the development of artists and raises their profile.

We at John E. Wright are grateful that we can continue to support NAE with a wide variety of printing services and are please to see the Open Exhibition return following the previous two years of disruption.

The current forecourt display was produced as direct print on DiBond/ACM and will bear the weather throughout the summer, however it choses to go!
