56th Essex Open

There’s been one or two glitches with the online application site which should have gone live on Friday 15th May. I am doing my very best to correct these problems with the site designers Surface Impression and I hope very much that the page will go live at some point this week. The closing date remains at this point Monday 15th June so providing the issues are corrected there’ll be plenty of time to enter. Your patience is really appreciated and I’m very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Kevin Marsh, Assistant Curator of Art Exhibitions
