Looking at The Fronteer Open 2018

Over the last month myself and Sharon Mossbeck – under our arts initiative Fronteer – have been busy organising, curating and promoting an open call exhibition and arts prize, entitled The Fronteer Open 2018. Sadly, this has now come to an end, but we hope to be back again next year with slightly amended plans and bigger prizes. Here’s a bit more information about the exhibition and how it all went.

We had around 550 visitors come through the exhibition, including around 100 visitors to the Private View. If you didn’t make it along to the Awards Evening, and you haven’t yet seen it on social media, our winning artists are:

Professional Winner: Caroline Greyling, One Second in Covent Garden

Amateur Winner: Susan Wright, Contours 2

Student Winner: Charlie Ottaway, Fish and Chips, By the Sea

People’s Choice Winner: Philip Lee, We Are All Wanderers

We were so impressed with the standard of work throughout the exhibition, and we hope that you all consider yourselves as winners for getting into the exhibition out of the more than 120 entries we received.

The feedback has been fantastic, with many visitors coming specially to see the exhibition. Everyone we have spoken to has said that the exhibition was excellent, the standard of work was really high, and the diversity of the work meant that there was something for everyone, so very well done to you all, and thank you for being involved.

We received more than 150 votes in the People’s Choice Award, and people really engaged with the exhibition when they decided to vote. The voting was spread pretty evenly across the exhibition, with every piece of work in the exhibition receiving at least one vote.

We cannot wait to deliver more open call opportunities next year!
