CAMBRIDGE OPEN ART EXHIBITION is a not-forprofit, artist led organisation, to benefit established and emerging artists living in Cambridge and elsewhere. By giving artists the opportunity to promote and showcase their work, the exhibition also brings art into the local community. For 22 years the exhibition was held at Cottenham Village College and is now in its 4th year at Swavesey Village College. The exhibition is the only one of this scale in East Anglia not to charge commission on work sold. Being nonselective there is a diverse mix of affordable art available at the exhibition. This year we are delighted that Dr. Catherine Burke, Reader in History of Education and Childhood at Cambridge University will be opening the exhibition at the preview on Friday 17th November 2017. We are very grateful to Dr. Burke for opening the exhibition.

JOHABETO ORPHANAGE IN KITALE,KENYA Cambridge Open Art Exhibition is pleased to support the Johabeto Orphanage in Kitale, Kenya. We do not charge an entry fee, however donations to our charity buckets are much appreciated. Every penny donated this way will go directly to the orphanage with no administration costs. The charity funds are separate from the exhibition, entry fees from artists are used for raising and promoting the show.

“A successful artwork must come from the heart! When judging I will look beyond the composition, understanding the medium and execution. I will search for the inspiration, the evolution and the desire to express own personality and life experiences of each individual artist.” Alastair Hull Judging Panel Alastair Hull - Haddenham Galleries Sheila Ceccarelli - Access Art John McGill - Sculptor

This year’s installation will be ‘An Eidophusikon’ - ‘Image of Nature’ By Steve Ferris in collaboration with local art groups and art students. The underlying theme is the cosmos, at a macro and micro level. The imagery can easily be interpreted as both the galactic expanse and a slice at the cellular level. The ‘rays’ are merely a decorative device to mark off the area to be painted by each individual in the project. “This concept has been tumbling around my mind for a long time. I conceived the project as only a ceiling to be installed in Kimbolton Castle, but that is on hold and it has morphed into something more inclusive and collective.” Steve Ferris


SWAVESEY VILL AGE COLLEGE Cambridge Open Art Exhibition are very grateful to all the students and staff at SVC for their continued support of the exhibition. This year the students have been working through ideas for a collaborative artwork based on their chosen theme, Kenya. You’ll find their final piece in the café area, where there will also be hands-on art activities for children. ‘Walk into the Arts’ is funded by Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, inspiring lifelong interest and participation in the arts through interactive experiences: Installation by artist Steve Ferris entitled ‘An Eidophusikon’ (natural appearance), children’s art activities, Win-a-picture prize draw and half the printing costs of this brochure.
