We are delighted to announce that Tracey Mendez, of Summerfield, has nominated the Open Council for the Turner Prize for our Public Display art exhibition at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland.

The Turner Prize, which is awarded every year for excellence in the arts, is this year being held in Newcastle at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. This will give many members the chance to see exhibition and be part of all the drama when the prize is awarded in December.

The Open Council can also reveal that members have been given the chance to have their say by nominating their favorite exhibition of the year. For details click here.
