'A.P.T’s two CREEKSIDE OPEN exhibitions are a personal snapshot of the breadth and diversity of contemporary visual art in the UK today. Lisa Milroy and Richard Deacon have independently selected recent work from one anonymous submission for two shows which will be held at the A.P.T Gallery, Deptford in May and June 2015.

The first exhibition has been selected by Lisa Milroy and includes work by sixty three artists. After two days viewing over 2,100 images, Lisa responded to her selection process in a very personal way, “Following my heart in selecting work for Creekside Open 2015, I responded to the submission by exploring my own artistic interests. I felt intrigued, surprised and delighted by such a diverse, thought-provoking range of work submitted by hundreds of artists.”

A.P.T set up the CREEKSIDE OPEN in 2005 and over the past ten years it has become one of the UK's foremost open competitions for visual artists.'
