An Eden Arts project in Partnership with Rheged
The C-Art Cumbrian Artist of the Year returns to the Gallery at Rheged. This year's exhibition, in association with Cumbria Life, showcases an excellent cross section of Cumbrian visual and applied arts. Conrad Atkinson, Margaret Harrison, Maddi Nicholson and Paul Scott have been specially invited to exhibit this year. These artists are widely regarded as some of the most established and internationally renowned artists working in Cumbria today. Their work will join a cross section of artwork from the wider Cumbrian artistic community, selected from an open call by a group of young curators aged 16-24, guided by Eliza Bonham Carter, Head of the Royal Academy Schools, and Nick Rogers, Curator at the Lakeland Arts Trust. Alongside the exhibition, there will be a major new Rheged commissioned sculpture trail that includes 3 major new commissions which respond to the architecture of the building funded by Arts Council England.
Friday 9 September to Sunday 13 November • 10am-5pm • Admission free
