Gordon Burns Art Exhibition Co-ordinator

The Festival Art programme offers an open exhibition of artworks open to all in the Calne area who have paintings, drawings or any form of 2D and 3D creative works to show. All are welcome to view. There is a public vote and the winning prizes have been doubled this year with the overall winner prize now £100.

We also have a digital image competition and a photographic exhibition both organised and run by Calne Camera Club. In addition, local artists are invited to open their studios which provides the opportunity to meet local artists and see them at work.

We are sure you enjoy the local artistic talent.
