The theme for the 2019 Cranleigh Open Art Exhibition is “Ways of Seeing” and artists are invited to interpret the theme through any subject and style, in any traditional medium (drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics/sculpture).
Take the opportunity to exhibit your work in a vibrant arts hub in the Surrey Hills and be in for a chance to be selected for a shared 'Winners Exhibition' in the Summer of 2020.
An independent judging panel will select their favourite piece and a runner up to be announced at the exhibition launch on Tuesday 26th November. The public will also get the chance to vote for their favourite piece with the winner being announced at the end of the exhibition.
