Jerwood Painting Fellowships
Call for Entries 2013
Deadline 30 January 2012
Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA) is delighted to announce the mentors for the 2013 Jerwood Painting Fellowships: Marcus Harvey, Mali Morris RA and Fabian Peake. This is the second year of the Fellowship scheme which aims to promote and support exceptional emerging painters in the first five years of their professional practice. The purpose of the Fellowships is to offer structured development opportunities in two distinctive areas: studio practice and professional development.
Three Fellowships will be awarded with each Fellow receiving a bursary of £10,000 and one year of critical and professional development support from mentors. This programme of support will be designed to suit the needs of each Fellow. During the Fellowship year each artist will work towards a body of new work, which will be exhibited in a group show as part of the JVA programme at Jerwood Space, London in
March 2013, before touring within the UK.
Jerwood Painting Fellowships is an open submission opportunity. Entry is by online application and artists must be resident in the UK and within five years of graduating or beginning their professional practice.
‘Professional life for artists starting out in their practice is tougher than ever right now. The second year of the Jerwood Painting Fellowships aims to provide a stimulating framework in which three outstanding artists can explore their work alongside invaluable peer and mentor support. It is by no means rocket science, but with the right ingredients of time, money and conversation, significant distances can
be traveled through the sharing of ideas.’ Shonagh Manson, Director, Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
Closing date for entries: 30 January 2012
