The UK’s longest-running and most prestigious artists’ collective, The London Group, is delighted to announce the artists selected from open call, to exhibit alongside its members, in the 82nd London Group Open:
The exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for the selected artists to raise their profile, win cash and material prizes, and exhibit their work to the public alongside the Group’s esteemed members. From the highest ever number of submissions, The London Group Selection Committee – which consist of existing member artists – carefully selected 71 artists to each exhibit a work across two exhibitions at The Cello Factory, London from 13 – 23 October and 27 October – 6 November 2015.
In recognition of today’s increasingly diversified art scene, the exhibition will feature works in a large range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, drawing, print, photography, digital, mixed media, installation, and video.
“The Selection Committee had an exhilarating time choosing the works from a send-in of high quality works, making the process even more of a challenge. They were impressed with the wide range of media and found it very stimulating looking at the refreshing breadth of works. The 82nd London Group Open looks set to be an outstanding exhibition and I’m sure all visitors will find something of value in the experience of seeing the show.” Susan Haire, President.
A selection of generous awards will be presented at a Prize Giving event on 6th November. The prizes include a three-person exhibition at The Cello Factory, and the Ingram Collection of Modern British & Contemporary Art purchase prize. Included within the £5000 prize fund is the Chelsea Arts Club Trust Stan Smith Award for an artist under 35 (£1,500), a sculpture prize awarded by Jeff Lowe (£500), the GX Gallery Annual prize (£300), and the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers Prize for Drawing (£300). Material prizes include the Winsor & Newton Materials Prize for Painting and Drawing (£500), and £300 worth of photographic services from Patrick Gorman.
The 82nd exhibition will be dedicated to former London Group member, Albert Irvin OBE RA, who sadly passed away this year. Albert was a member of the Group for 50 years. His work will be on display during both parts of the exhibition.
Two artists’ talks with some of the exhibiting artists will take place on 19th October and 2nd November 2015. For further details please visit: www.thelondongroup.com
