New Lights exhibition
Earlier on this month two of my pieces got shortlisted for the New Lights exhibition. New Lights is a charity formed in 2010 to promote and support emerging young artists in contemporary art in the North of England.
The judges this year have drawn a short-list of 50 works by 33 artists from 298 entries. I feel very privileged to be amongst them.
On the Friday of 20th of September the exhibition had its private view in Mercer Gallery in Harrogate. To my surprise and delight I was awarded the TIG Price (The Inter Group) for the most outstanding representational work. TIG is a Yorkshire-based marketing communications provider.
The 2013 Prize Exhibition will run from 21 September until 17 November 2013. Please do come and visit for a browse of very talented people from North of England. The exhibition will then move on to The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle in January 2014.
This year’s winner of £10,000 Valeria Sykes Award is Josie Jenkins – Congratulations!
