The fourth edition of art exhibition From the Studio Floor will be taking place in the centre of Cambridge from Tuesday 4th - Thursday 6th October. This pop-up contemporary art exhibition will showcase 50 different works in a variety of medium in the prestigious setting of the Great Hall at the Guildhall.
From the Studio Floor will host works from artists at all stages in their careers ranging from celebrated portraitist Robert Lenkiewicz to up-and-coming artists such as Ania Hobson, all of which are, as the name suggests, fresh from the studio floor and therefore previously unseen by the public. From over 400 submissions, 50 paintings, sculptures and installations have been chosen by curator Jessica Oliver, to tie in with the 50th anniversary of sponsors MLM Group, an engineering consultancy with a well-established office in Cambridge as part of their national and international operations. This year marks the fourth successive year that MLM have supported the exhibition, as it continues to reinforce its commitment to the local community in and around Cambridge.
This edition of From the Studio Floor has a particular focus on the value of art to visually impaired people, challenging traditional preconceptions about its relevance and the benefits it can offer. 20% of sales will be donated to the Cam Sight, to help its work across Cambridgeshire with people of all ages living with visual impairment.
"The link between visual arts and visual impairment isn't always obvious," explains Jessica, "and it has been quite extraordinary to discover how many people with less than perfect sight still enjoy both creating their own work and experiencing that of others".
From the Studio Floor will be at the Guildhall, Cambridge from 4th-6th September, open daily from 9.30am-4pm (closing at 3.30pm on Thursday 6th). Admission is free.
