Goole Museum is inviting entrants from in and around Goole to submit artwork for its popular 2022 Open Art Exhibition.

The exhibition, which is in its eighth year, celebrates the creativity of local amateur and professional artists and provides an exciting opportunity for members of the community to display and sell their artwork.
