CR Art Exhibition 2021


This week in College, the Master presented prizes to the five winners in this year’s CR Art Contest.

With over 65 entries received from current and incoming students, alumni, Fellows, and staff, the judging panel, comprised of members of the College’s Arts Committee and the CR Committee, had a difficult job picking the winners from so many excellent entries. Styles and media ranged from pen and ink, pencil, paintings, computer artwork, photos, lino prints and collage. The Master had a similarly difficult decision picking her ‘Master’s Choice’ and in congratulating the winners, she reminded us that art still plays, and must play, an important part in all our lives, and the images captured the variety and diversity we all enjoy at St Edmund’s.

Gordon Chesterman, Chair of the College’s Art Committee, was similarly impressed with all the entries and, although disappointed none of his submissions won a prize!, is looking forward to next year’s competition and seeing many more excellent student entries.

The majority of this year’s submissions, plus a few from last year’s exhibition, are all on show along the corridor between the CR and Dining Hall – do take a close look next time you’re in College.

Those winning the prizes for each of the five categories are:

College Life Prize: Miao Zhu for When it Snows
Cambridge Prize: Raphaël Jacquat for Vision of St John’s College Under the Light
Diversity Prize: Amber Roos for Living Stranger
Student Vote Prize: Andrew Siyuan Chen for The Grind Doesn’t Stop
Master’s Choice Prize: Stephen Pearcy for Pasture? Pleasure? Profit?

You can see the winning entires (and all of the entries) on the CR website:

If you see the winners around, please, congratulate them for their wonderful work!
