National Open Art 2016

27th October – 4th November 2016

It is the heart of the City of London that will host NOA16, the 20th National Open Art Exhibition this autumn.

Curated by Robin Muir, following his hugely successful curation of the National Portrait Gallery’s Vogue100 earlier this year, this free admission exhibition at Mercers’ Hall will feature 185 selected paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, wall hung installations, digital art pieces and short films.

The artworks have been selected by an expert panel of judges, including Muir and Royal Academician David Remfry, from thousands of pieces by the very best professional and amateur artists working today in the UK and Ireland.

More than £50,000 worth of prizes will be awarded to 30 artists, including for the hotly anticipated NOA Emerging Artist of the year and NOA Young Artists of the year, when Lord Mervyn Davies opens the exhibition on Thursday, 27th October.

Two paintings from Rob Reed have been selected for the exhibition; ‘The Allotments, no:8′ and ‘The Allotments, no:9′

Exhibition runs from 27th October – 4 November 2016
