The Open West at Gloucester Cathedral
Saturday 3 to Sunday 18 March 2012
See the culmination of The Open West contemporary art competition at Gloucester Cathedral, during the fourth annual exhibition which features 55 local and international artists.
Emma Critchley's Reflection will be just one of the talking points at this year's exhibition.
In what is expected to be one of Gloucestershire’s most popular spring exhibitions, The Open West 2012 will see 55 selected artists’ work go on display in the stunning surrounds of Gloucester Cathedral.
Opening on Saturday 3 March 2012, visitors to Gloucester Cathedral can expect to see around 90 pieces of contemporary art ranging from paintings, sculpture, prints, photography, ceramics and drawing to film and site-specific installations on show at the Cathedral.
Organisers say: ‘Many of the selected artists have responded directly to this ancient building and have created new work, while others are seeing a fresh dialogue emerge between their work and the ever-present voice of the Cathedral.’
For the fourth year in a row the competition has been curated and organised by Lyn Cluer Coleman and Sarah Goodwin, who have this year been joined on the selection panel by artists Iain Andrews and Dan Chadwick for the tricky process of shortlisting the work of local and international artists.
‘This is a significant opportunity for an audience to see a collection of independent visions held together in a powerful and evocative setting,’ organisers continue.
