|About||Cambridgeshire's major independent Open Art Exhibition featuring contemporary and traditional paintings, sculpture and prints, and the Cambridge Art Awards|
Cambridge Open Art Exhibition 2017 will take place at Swavesey Village College on Friday 17th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November.
With something for everyone – paintings, prints and cards to buy, creative activities for children, win-a-picture draw and an interactive installation – this is a must-see event just before Christmas. The Preview Reception takes place on Friday 17th at 6.30pm and the Awards Ceremony will be opened by Dr. Catherine Burke, Reader in History of Education and Childhood at University of Cambridge. Tickets available for £5 from SVC box office buy online: www.ticketsource.co.uk/swaveseyvc .
Free entry over the weekend with plenty of parking.
Exhibiting artists compete for the Cambridge Art Awards with a top prize and this year the Top Twenty chosen artists will go forward to an exhibition at Haddenham Gallery, Ely.
COAX is completely self-funding, no public funding has been applied for and the voluntary organisation relies on local businesses for prizes and support. This year it will include a charity event in aid of Johabeto Orphanage in Kitale, Kenya.
The pupils and staff at Swavesey Village College are involved in all aspects of raising the exhibition and this provides an excellent learning opportunity for the students, ranging from practical hanging arrangements, to meeting and discussing artworks with artists and acting the role of reporters and photographers interviewing judges and audience.
