SCAF Emerging Artist Award

In Exhibition News by Alun Kirby

I am honoured to have been shortlisted for the first SCAF Emerging Artist award.

“The SCAF Emerging Artist Award has been created to acknowledge up and coming artists of all ages who are living in the Yorkshire region. The intent of the award is to bring recognition and awareness to outstanding visual artists in the region who are at the early stages of their career and who have not yet established a reputation as an artist amongst art curators, buyers, critics and the general public.”

For this award I will be creating a work based on the theme of ‘metamorphosis’.

The outcome of the award will be known in September 2019, with exhibitions of all work Sept-Dec at Ornhams Hall, Boroughbridge, and in March-April at the Rural Arts Centre, Thirsk.
