Cambridgeshire’s major independent Open Art Exhibition featuring contemporary and traditional paintings, sculpture and prints and the Cambridge Art Awards. Promoting art, artists and well-being through exhibition, education and participation.
The artist/volunteer group are already preparing for next year’s show which will be held on 17th – 19th November 2017. As always artists are encouraged to enter early to book their space. Join our mailing list to be the first to know when entries open, just click here
We are determined to keep the exhibition non-selective to ensure a wide-ranging show of artwork to please our audience and encourage young and emerging artists to exhibit alongside professionals.
As always we will be holding the Cambridge Art Awards where the judges will choose the Top Twenty and the major art awards. Watch this space to see who this year’s judges will be!
At last year’s exhibition we introduced a charity element to the event. There is no entry fee for the visitors so they were encouraged – by enthusiastic Swavesey students – to support the Jahabeto orphanage in Kitale, Kenya. The staff and students from SVC are also involved in raising and promoting the exhibition and this aspect has become a key feature of the Cambridge Open Art Exhibition in recent years. The development of creativity through the visual arts and education is one of our main aims.
