art & the letter online exhibition 2021

Welcome to Art and The Letter Online, our first online exhibition, featuring work by CLAS members and non-members alike.

This year our four categories are: 

  1.  Art in Lockdown
  2.  Writing in a self-made book 
  3.  TEXTiles 
  4.  One for sorrow

Please click on each thumbnail to view a larger image. Where there are letters b, c, d etc it is an entry into the ‘Writing in a self-made book category and the pictures illustrate the various pages for each piece. This gallery consists of 3 pages, please use the navigation menu at the foot of the page to scroll through the exhibition. 

This accompanying Exhibition Directory contains further information about each piece plus the judges’ comments.

Due to the nature of holding and judging an online exhibition, this year we are limiting awards to Members’ Choice and The Brian Walker Prize (£100)

CLAS Members will receive an email via MailChimp to vote for Members’ Choice. These votes need to be received by 5pm on Friday 5th March (UK time) so that we can announce the winner at the AGM online on Saturday 6th March. 

The exhibition will be online from Saturday 27th February until Sunday 14th March.

Thank you to everyone who participated and to our three judges: Jan Sambell FCLAS, Julia Baxter FCLAS, and Rachel Yallop FCLAS.
