The 14th Open Art Exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Peter Boughton, our Museums Keeper of Art who sadly passed away in 2019. Peter was passionate about everything he did, and he was particularly proud of the Open Art Exhibition. He set a very high standard, and we’re sure the pieces selected for this Open Art would also meet with his critical approval.
