Exhibition Opening: Left Bank Leeds Art Prize 2019


The Left Bank Leeds Art Prize is a £500 prize awarded to an exceptional artist exhibiting as part of our summer group show. This year, we're asking artists to submit work related to the theme of connection in a range of mediums.

At this opening event, see over work by over 50 artists longlisted for the prize and vote for the winner from a shortlist chosen by our selection panel. The winner will be announced after voting closes at 7.30pm.

Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine as you explore a diverse selection of work inside our beautiful Grade II* listed building. You'll be able to chat to several of the exhibiting artists and some of the work may be available to purchase.

This event is free to attend but donations are very welcome. The summer group show itself will run from 17-20 July, 10am-4pm each day.

If you'd like to submit your work for consideration, please see our open call out on CuratorSpace [].

All money raised through this event will support the development of Left Bank Leeds Charitable Trust, (charity no. 1146734).

_Please note, we take photos at our events for marketing purposes. If you would prefer not to appear in our images, it is your responsibility to speak to a member of staff at the event, in order to seek out the photographer and inform them of your wishes._
