Press Release: Open Exhibition Winner
We're delighted to announce the opening of this year’s Open Exhibition on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
Earlier in the year we invited local artists and craftspeople to contribute their work to an exhibition based around the idea of ‘Our Heritage’. The Spring is an ideal venue for this exhibition, as it is one of the few arts centres in the UK that also houses a museum. Our aim was to bring our heritage stories to life though the medium of the arts, and to explore how our local heritage can inspire artists.
We asked artists to submit work inspired by The Spring’s heritage collection, or by local heritage stories. We also accepted photographs of local heritage sites.
We held a special ‘Private View’ on Wednesday 19 April, and the winner of the competition for best work on display was announced by Interim Director Jon Woodley. The Open Exhibition winner was Adrian Mundy, with his pieces Bowl, Residue and Straight Lines. Graeme Swain’s Muse Study 1,2 & 3 was highly commended.
The exhibition will be available for viewing until Friday 30 June in the Upper Mezzanine Gallery.
