In attendance at the private view were the selectors, Richard Cox, Lyn Cluer Coleman, Sarah Goodwin and Zelda Cheatle. Dale Vince OBE, founder and MD of Ecotricity sponsored the prizes and the Arts Council South West, Gloucester County Council and Cheltenham Borough Council funded the event. The award winners were Masaki Yada, Rachel Cunningham and Naoko Miyazaki.



Many visitors attended both local and those from far afield. Those that stayed locally were able to attend the Cheltenham Museum and Art Gallery, which is also showing artists linked to 'the open west'.



Both UK and overseas Artists are to be seen in this astonishing exhibition, which will be run annually in Cheltenham.
