Arts-Festival

It’s 25 days until the 21st Camberwell Arts Festival!

Did you know we are the longest running visual arts festival in the UK?
It is organised by a group of hard-working volunteers who work to seek to promote the arts in this unique area of South-East London, through unveiling emerging talent and collaborating with internationally acclaimed artists, designers and creatives.

We want this year’s Festival to be a feast for the eyes…a feast for the soul…a feast for the stomach!

Running from the 20th-28th June, this year’s festival is FEAST — but it’s not just food — it’s also about celebrating the cultural feast that exists in Camberwell in the form of art, performance and creativity.

The programme is fit to bursting, and has been sent to the printers. We launch on the 1st June, and will be keeping you updated with all of the very latest news, such as…

The Camberwell Open

thecamberwellopen.org

Last autumn, we gained a whole host of new trustees keen to share their talents. Amongst them was Gita Joshi: a Camberwell resident and art gallery owner (orsomajor.com) who felt passionate about the manifesto to celebrate the arts in Camberwell and Camberwell through the arts.

Which why this year, she will be curating an inaugural Open Exhibition for all Camberwell artists whether they are leisure painters, semi-professionals or full time artists. The exhibition will present a snapshot of creative practice from artists based in, or associated with Camberwell.

Artists including students and those who paint or produce art for leisure are encouraged to submit to see their work hung, and on sale, alongside some known names from the art scene. It is set to be a great event, and there will be three prize winners selected by a jury.

Camberwell has several life drawing groups as well as artists’ studios used by full time artists. The exhibition aims to present all of their offerings under one roof so we really can celebrate the gamut of art across Camberwell / SE5.

The exhibition will take place in Camberwell Leisure Centre, Artichoke Place from 5th to 28th June 2015 as part of the Camberwell Arts Festival.

To apply…
Artists need to fill out a simple online form.
A submission fee of £10 per artwork, with up to three submissions from a single artist.
Only 2-D submissions will be accepted. In the future, we hope to accommodate 3-D submissions.

We hope you will all dig out your paints, camera, pastels, and pencils and take part.
