At Eclectix we strive hard to provide you with a selection of only the cool and interesting art exhibitions. We list them by opening date first and then by region – when you are out on the town you can easily find some nearby art worth seeing. This includes art under the eclectic labels of: fine art, new contemporary, realism, newbrow, lowbrow, urban, street, pop, surrealism, science, fantasy, cartoon, outsider, folk, emerging, tattoo, visionary and traditional. If there is no closing date listed, please check with the venue. The calendar listings are by no means all encompassing, they are edited by Eclectix.

Check out your local art listings for more and if we’ve missed something wonderful, let us know (on the submissions page).
