The Chigwell Open Junior Art and Design Exhibition has been an annual event since 1997. It is an ‘open’ exhibition in every sense and primary and prep schools are invited to submit up to eight pieces of 2D or 3D work without restrictions on size or medium. The exhibition is held in the Gallery, and presented professionally so that the children see their work as though it was in a real London art gallery. This year three hundred pieces of work were mounted and displayed from artists aged three to twelve. On Saturday 2nd March a special private view was held for all of the children, their teachers, parents and friends. A wonderful selection of art was displayed from twenty seven schools, ranging from beautiful still life studies, to fishy fabric bags made to be used instead of plastic bags, to raise the awareness of the devastating plastic pollution in our oceans. Over three hundred visitors enjoyed this private view and they were amazed at the high standard and variety of work on display.
All parents and friends are welcome to view the exhibition between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday, but must first report to reception from where they will be accompanied to the Gallery. The exhibition will be open for general viewing until Friday 22nd of March.
