Cambridge, , UK United Kingdom

Visitors will find some of the most exciting new art in the eastern region in this year's Kettle's Yard Open. Sixteen artists have been selected from an open submission of nearly 350 artists by photographic artist Catherine Yass and ceramicist Edmund de Waal.

Artists include: Jeremy Andrews , Alexandra Baraitser, Jutta Bastian, Susan Dalladay, Matt Davis, Mark Edwards, Neil Henderson , Frances Kearney, Jonathan Keep, David Kefford , Graham Murrell, Elspeth Owen, Martha Winter, Simon Whitnall, Fiona Saffron Wilkes, Nick Yates.

Many of the works will be for sale, the ‘ifree art’ interest free credit scheme is available.

After a two year gap the Kettle's Yard Open returns to provide a platform for some of the best artists working in the eastern region.

For sixteen years, Kettle's Yard was the home of Jim Ede, a former curator at the Tate Gallery, London, and his wife, Helen. It houses Ede's collection of art, mostly of the first half of the twentieth century. The collection includes paintings by Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, David Jones, Joan Miró and many others, along with sculpture by artists including Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.

Paintings and sculpture are interlaced with furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects. Ede's vision of Kettle's Yard was of a place that was not "an art gallery or museum, nor . . . simply a collection of works of art reflecting my taste or the taste of a given period. It is, rather, a continuing way of life from these last fifty years, in which stray objects, stones, glass, pictures, sculpture, in light and in space, have been used to make manifest the underlying stability . . ."
