In partnership with Eden Arts, the C-Art Cumbrian Artist of the Year exhibition is selected from an open call of contemporary artists who live and work in Cumbria as well as those who originated from the county. The exhibition will feature an eclectic mix of artworks working across all media from traditional painting and sculpture to contemporary video installation and photography, with a number of renowned guest artists joining the submitted entries. The 2016 exhibition saw over 22,500 visitors and 43 exhibiting artists selected from 87 entries. In an innovative format unique to this exhibition, the work is selected by a group of young people aged between 16-24. These ‘Young Curators’ are involved in all aspects of the exhibition planning, from selection to writing exhibition texts and installing the work. They are led by experienced art professionals who help guide them into informed decisions, making this a fantastic opportunity for young people at the very start of their careers. You can find out more about the C-Art Young Curators scheme from the web link below. Artists wishing to submit work to the C-Art Cumbrian Artist of the Year can do so by clicking on the web link below. As part of the C-Art festival 2017, this year’s exhibition promises to show a tremendous variety of artwork in styles that are both familiar and surprising but always championing the quality of Cumbrian Art. The opening of the exhibition coincides with the C-Art Festival BIG Weekend #1, 8th – 10th September, which includes the C-Art Art Fair in Rheged’s Exhibition halls.
