SFSA member Koji Shiraya - works included in the open west at Gloucester Cathedral, 3 to 31 March 2012

SFSA studio member Koji Shiraya has his ceramic works included in next months 'the open west' at Gloucester Cathedral

On 3 March 2012 Gloucester Cathedral is opening its doors as the setting for the open west's annual exhibition. This event is an international competition open to artists practising across a range of contemporary disciplines. Around 90 pieces of work from 55 artists have been selected by the curators and organisers Sarah Goodwin and Lyn Cluer Coleman who were joined on the 2012 selection panel by artists Iain Andrews and Dan Chadwick. Work includes sculpture, painting, site-specific installation, drawing, textile, photography, ceramics, print and video. Award winners will be announced on the night of the private view.

Many of the selected artists have responded directly to this ancient building and have created new work, while others are seeing a fresh dialogue emerge between their work and the ever-present voice of the Cathedral.  A number of the artists are recently emerged from fine art MA programmes, many others are already highly established and internationally exhibited; all come from very different backgrounds and each has a distinct story to tell. This is a significant opportunity for an audience to see a collection of independent visions held together in a powerful and evocative setting.
