Maryam has been shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize!
Out of more than 600 artworks entered by over 270 artists, the short list of 25 includes artists from Europe, South America, Iran, China, South Africa, North and Central America who are working across sculpture, digital, painting, photography and many more styles.
The prize has been focused on offering support to all Artists throughout the duration of it and as a result entry numbers were very high and a really diverse shortlist has been created - it's great to be a part of.
The prizes are complemented with a series of ongoing talks providing practical marketing guidance for artists, a constantly updated social media presence offering advice tips and promoting all early entrants and the option for every entrant to request feedback.
The winners will be announced in June 2015, with events and online support continuing while individual feedback is sent to the 200+ artists that requested it.
Commenting on the Art Prize, Ashurst corporate partner and founder of the Emerging Artist initiative Anthony Clare said:
"The prize has so far exceeded expectations, not just in the quality of the work but also in terms of number of entrants, in part driven by the support we have offered to every artist through the application process. This prize is the flagship of our arts programme and reflects our commitment to the promotion of the arts and artists of the future. This is an important initiative, not only for Ashurst but for all the artists taking part. We have high hopes for the outcome of this new important prize and congratulate all of the short listed artists.”
All of the shortlisted artists are exhibited at the Ashurst Emerging Artist Gallery between April and June this year before a winner is decided on.
We decided to submit Crowd and were we were obviously delighted that the jury selected it as one of 25 shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize which is sponsored by Ashurst LLP.
There are £3,000 and £1,500 cash prizes with solo exhibitions in London.
Please go along to the Ashurst Emerging Artist Gallery to view the artwork in person, and the other 24 finalists' works. It is a great event to be involved with and the standard of the shortlisted works is exceptional.
