The Art Show, 'Wot We Done' event at Morecambe Library features art "inspired" by the TV comedian.
Organisers Morecambe Artist Colony asked 150 artists to submit work but say anyone can send in "Eric artwork".
The event coincides with an exhibition about the Morecambe-born entertainer at Lancaster's City Museum which also opens today.
Sian Johnson, one of the organisers of the Morecambe art show, said: "Eric is very important to the town - he's our lad.
"I think people will get a lot of pleasure from the exhibition: it's a new way of looking at his life.
"The art will be spread around the library and will also include people's "selfies" at Eric's statue on the prom.
"I think it's the most-loved statue in Britain."
