ARCHIVE – C-Art Cumbrian Artist of the Year 2015
SATURDAY 25 APRIL – SUNDAY 28 JUNE 2015 // The inaugural competition and exhibition in Rheged’s main gallery celebrates the breadth and depth of Cumbria’s creative talent. Organised as part of C-Art, Cumbria’s largest visual arts event, the competition is open to any artist living and working in Cumbria. The winning artist will receive a cash prize of £2000, sponsored by Rheged. The long list of artists selected to appear in the exhibition will be announced in March. These artists will be whittled down to the four shortlisted artists at the beginning of the exhibition in April before the winner is announced in May. Between the opening and the announcement of the winner, visitors will be able to take part in a ‘People’s Choice’ vote, to choose which artist is most popular with the public at large.
