Griffin Art Prize 2015
Deadline for submissions: 31st July 2015
Designed to have meaningful impact on the career of one emerging artist, the Griffin Art Prize is an annual residency and exhibition award for UK based artists in painting and drawing. It provides the time, space, materials and support to develop work for a solo exhibition.
The Griffin Art Prize winner has unique access to a large studio in the Studio Building, 21, Evesham Street, London W11. Materials of choice are provided by the world’s leading fine art brands, Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris. The six month residency culminates in an exhibition with catalogue in Griffin Gallery, located on the ground floor of the Studio Building.
Twenty artists selected for the long list of the Griffin Art Prize 2015 will have their work showcased on www.griffinartprize.com.
A showcase exhibition of ten short-listed artists will be exhibited at Griffin Gallery; from this the winner of Griffin Art Prize 2015 will be selected by the judges and announced at the private view on Wednesday 18 November 2015.
The judges - Emma Crichton-Miller, Jenni Lomax, Jenny Lindén Urnes and Stuart Semple - will look for innovation in painting and drawing, commitment to practise and for the potential to benefit from the residency.
Each stage of the Griffin Art Prize provides a platform for professional exposure. To make the long list is a considerable achievement; the short-list exhibition is a popular and well attended event that attracts collectors, critics, art world professionals and the general public. The winning artist’s solo exhibition at Griffin Gallery is a high-profile showcase accompanied by a catalogue.
