Artworks artist Lyn Aylward is one of five regional artists shortlisted for the East Anglian Artists Development Prize, a competition open to all visual artists aged under forty and living in Norfolk, Suffolk or Essex, inviting them to apply for the £5000 professional development prize.
The prize is organised by the Anteros Arts Foundation, which is based in Norwich, UK. The other shortlisted artists are: Adam Batchelor, Rachel Daniel, Rosie Winn and Thomas Joynes.
You can see examples of the shortlisted artists’ work in an exhibition currently on at Anteros Arts, which runs from 9th March to 28th April 2012. The Anteros Arts Gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday, 10am – 5pm.
One of the five shortlisted artists will be awarded the £5,000 prize, free access to Anteros Arts courses for a year and a solo exhibition in Spring 2013 at Anteros Arts. The judging panel comprises John Hemmant, Aude Gotto and Susan Mumford, but feedback from gallery visitors will also contribute to the final decision. The winning artist will be announced on 14 April 2012 at 2pm.
Good luck Lyn!
