Open Open 2017, Swiss Cottage Gallery July-Sep

The Open Open calls artists, professional and amateur, from anywhere and any age, to bring along a piece of their artwork for exhibition. Recurring each year at Swiss Cottage Gallery, the Open Open provides a great opportunity for artists, professional and other, to show their work in a “salon style” exhibition.
