Leicester Museum & Art Gallery Open Exhibition

Each year we award prizes to works in the annual open exhibition at Leicester's New Walk Museum & Art Gallery - at the Open 28 exhibition in 2017 we chose Catherine Headley, Jane French and Tiffany Tangen [clockwise from top left, below]. 

Their work will be on show in our meeting rooms from Summer 2017, and in our Lightbox gallery in late Summer 2018 to complement the Open 29 exhibition at New Walk Museum.

LCB Depot is also home to the Print Room, Leicester Print Workshop's showcase at LCB Depot for its members' work. It is open Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.30pm. The Print Room is sometimes used for meetings, so please call us on 0116 261 6800 to check availability before making your visit.
