There’s now more time for artists in the Ribble Valley and surrounding areas to submit their work for display in an annual exhibition.

The deadline for submissions to the “Inspired: The Ribble Valley Open” exhibition has been extended to Tuesday, May 31st.

The exhibition is open to amateur and professional artists, and students who live or work in the Ribble Valley and nearby.

This year, artists have been challenged to produce work to reflect their personal interpretation on a theme of “time”.

Claire Sutton, Lancashire County Council’s museum manager at Clitheroe Castle, said: “We’ve extended the deadline to allow more artists to submit their work. We’ve already received some high quality submissions and the extension will hopefully mean that we receive even more.

“The artist awarded the Selectors’ Choice this year will get the chance to have a solo exhibition next year.”

Each artist can submit a maximum of three examples of their work. The exhibition, in the Steward’s Gallery, will run from Saturday August 6th to Sunday October 16th.

The Steward’s Gallery is open daily from 11 am to 4 pm and admission to the exhibition in this part of Clitheroe Castle is free.

Admission to Clitheroe Castle is £4.20 for adults and £3.10 for concessions. Young people aged 13 to 18, and accompanied children up to the age of 12, go free.

Limited disabled parking is available at the museum. Parking is also available on car parks in the town centre.
