With 922 works submitted by 332 artists, the selectors spent a long and challenging day deciding which works to include in this year’s Open exhibition. Their brief was to draw together a body of work that represented the wide range of creative practice taking place in our region, from style and medium, to subject and technical ability. From the large number of applications they finally drew together 49 works from 31 artists.
Liam Aitken, Chloe Ashley, Andrew Bracey, Wayne Burrows, Belen Cerezo, Jacqui Dodds, Jane Domingos, Jenna Finch, Craig Fisher, Karen Fraser, Lynn Fulton, Hattrick & Sangster, Steven Ingman, Elliot Ingram, Geoffrey Jones, Daniel Sean Kelly, Maggie Lewis, Nick Mobbs, Rebecca Ounstead, Diana M Pasek-Atkinson, Faith Pearson, Yelena Popova, Dermot Punnett, Simon Raven, Bob Robinson, David Scarborough, Derek Sprawson, Tether, Marek Tobolewski, John E Walter and Jane Wheat.
