Griffin Art Prize UK entry deadline extended to Aug. 10
LONDON – The Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK is now open for entry to all UK based artists graduated since 2009, and whose primary medium is painting or drawing. The deadline for submissions has been extended to Sunday, Aug. 10.
The winning artist will be awarded the one-off opportunity to take up a six-month residency in a large well-lit studio above the gallery. They will also have access to the Innovation & Development laboratory of leading global art brands Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris, where the latest art products are developed, a truly unique offering. The winner of the prize will also be given the opportunity to exhibit new work in a solo show in September 2015, which is accompanied by a catalog.
The prize will be judged by Alastair Smart, arts editor and chief art critic at Sunday Telegraph; Jenny Lindén, owner and chairman of Lindéngruppen; Jenni Lomax OBE, director of Camden Arts Centre; and international artists Gordon Cheung and Anj Smith.
The judges will be looking for innovation in painting and drawing and for the applicants’ potential to benefit from the residency.
A long-list of 20 selected artists for the Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK will be announced on Sept. 18 and will have their work showcased on the Griffin Art Prize website (www.griffinartprize.co.uk). An exhibition of 10 short-listed artists, who will be selected on Oct. 6, will be held at West London’s Griffin Gallery where the winner of Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK will be selected by the judges and announced at the private view in the Griffin Gallery on Nov. 18.
Previous winners include Alzbeta Jaresova (2012) who was included in the 2013 Catlin Guide to the 40 most promising new graduate UK artists, and Luke George and Elizabeth Rose (2013) who are currently developing work in the studio toward their September 2014 solo exhibition in West London’s Griffin Gallery.
