The annual Harris Opening exhibition offers people of all backgrounds throughout Preston to shine through their artistic talent.

Joan Fussell from the museum said: “It’s a chance for people to get creative through lots of art and events; to get invested in the exhibition itself.”

This year artists have used a range of ‘art mediums’ to fully showcase the their talents, ranging from sculpture to paint and 3D work to ceramics.
