As you may know, we are currently seeking applicants for the Jerwood Painting Fellowships 2016.
The Fellowships will provide three outstanding emerging painters with a bursary of £10,000, the support of a mentor for a period of a year, and a group exhibition in the Jerwood Visual Arts programme at Jerwood Space, London and on a UK tour. They are open to artists who are within the first five years of their professional practice, and the closing date for applications is approaching, on 2 March 2015.We are extremely fortunate this year to be working with Dan Coombs, Jane Harris and Phoebe Unwin as mentors.
To enable us to build up the strongest possible shortlist, I am contacting those in our network who are in touch with ambitious and committed artists, particularly those in the early stages of their careers. We want to make sure that the best people know about the Fellowships and that news of the opportunity is shared broadly, ensuring as a diverse shortlist as possible. Please note there is no requirement to have attended art school or university.
I would like to ask that if anyone springs to mind, you would help to bring it to their attention. Please do also share information amongst your networks if you are able; details on how to apply are at www.jerwoodvisualarts.org/jerwood-painting-fellowships-2016
Many thanks for your support,
Director, Jerwood Charitable Foundation
