The North Ayrshire Open Art committee are an enthusiastic group of volunteers who are committed to ensuring that the annual Open Art Exhibition is an established event on the Scottish art exhibition calendar.

This prestigious exhibition showcases the work of artists living and working in Ayrshire, Scotland and beyond. It has attracted thousands of visitors since the first exhibition in 1996 with many returning each year.


Artists from around Scotland are invited to submit 2 & 3 dimensional artworks for the exhibition which takes place in the beautiful light and airy setting of the Racquet Hall in the picturesque grounds of Eglinton Park.

Our exhibition is 'not for profit' so we rely on the generosity of our volunteers and sponsors to keep it going. If you are interested in getting involved, sponsoring or making a donation please contact:
