We are delighted to announce the artists whose work was selected for the exhibition, those who were selected for the book and those whose work was longlisted. We received over 450 entries in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture and video, the quality of the work was astounding. With so many submissions and a relatively small gallery to work in, it was never going to be possible to include all the work that we would have wanted to show. One or two of the submissions could have filled the entire space! Many excellent pieces ended up on the ‘cutting-room floor’, entirely owing to the constraints of space.
