Successful entrants will see their work hung in one of two exhibitions, staged during October and November 2015 at The Cello Factory.
The London Group Draw II
The London Group Draw II was a fantastic night at The Cello Factory. Over 120 original art works by members and friends of the group were sold raising money to house the 2017 Open exhibition in a single large venue.
For the price of £100 a ticket people left the Cello Factory with a piece of London Group art under their arm. The event raised over £12000. Thanks to the organisers and particularly Gill Ingham for making it such a successful, chaotic and fun night. Everybody seemed happy with their selection even down to the end which goes to show the diversity of work on show. The London Group has something for everyone.
"Always it is by bridges that we live", from Bridge for the Living, Philip Larkin, Collected Poems, 2003.

London is a bridge. It was the lowest point at which the Thames could be bridged. It joins people. It makes connections. Diverse connections. Eleven members of The London Group identify in their work a permanent momentum to cross-reference, reach over to other domains, link and re-orientate.
