Who Made The Surrey Artist Of The Year 2014 Shortlist?
Surrey Artists Open Studios have announced the shortlist for the Surrey Artist of the Year 2014.
Adam Aaronson, Christine Hopkins, Iona McKenzie Laycock, Rachel Mulligan, Terri Smart, Joe Szabo, Jean Tolkovsky, Jim Tucker, Clare Waterhouse, Barbara Westwell and Emily Westwell have been voted as the public’s favourite Surrey Artists.
The selected artists received the most votes during the Surrey Artists Open Studios summer event and have been invited to exhibit at the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham for the Surrey Artist of the Year 2014 Exhibition.
During the first three weeks of the Exhibition the public will again have the chance to vote for their favourite Surrey Artist. These votes along with those from a judging panel will determine the Surrey Artist of the Year 2014. The winner will be announced on the 17th October 2014.
The Surrey Artist of the Year 2014 will win the chance to have a solo Exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery and a cash prize.
The Surrey Artist of the Year Exhibition is a partnership between the New Ashgate Gallery and Surrey Artists’ Open Studios. Both are committed to supporting and developing creative talent in the area.
Voting for your Surrey Artist of the Year 2014 will help Surrey Artists with their professional development. It will also allow them to launch their arts practice in one of Surrey’s leading contemporary art galleries and to reach a wider audience.
Make sure you get along to the exhibition and support your local artists!
