Flourish Award 2017 award night & closing party

  • 27 October 2017 6-8pm

Join us for the closing party of the Flourish Award exhibition and announcement of prize winners on

Friday 27th October, 6.00 - 8.00pm

West Yorkshire Print Workshop is pleased to invite you to the Flourish Award 2017 prize giving event. Established in 2009 to champion printmakers working throughout Yorkshire, Flourish now celebrates work from across the UK, with an exhibition of artists selected from open submission.

The exhibition brings together a wide range of prints made by artists shortlisted for this year’s award, selected by an independent panel of judges. Sumi Perera, artist and winner of Flourish 2015; Yvonne Hardman, Head of Collections and Programmes at Leeds Museums and Galleries; and Grant Scanlon, Huddersfield Museums Manager, have carefully considered artworks submitted from all over the country. Their selection presents a diverse, rich and imaginative group of 12 printmakers which is on display in the WYPW gallery in Mirfield.

The winner of the Flourish Award will receive a 2-week residency at West Yorkshire Print Workshop and the chance to present a solo print exhibition at Huddersfield Art Gallery in Autumn 2018.

The judges will also award prizes to highly commended artists in the exhibition, kindly donated by Great Art, Jackson’s Art Supplies, Intaglio Printmaker, RK Burt & Co, Awagami Papers (Japan) and Hawthorn Printmaker Supplies.

Visitors to the exhibition are invited to select their own favourite for our People’s Choice Award, which will also be announced at the end of the exhibition. The exhibition runs until 28th October.

Shortlisted artists for the Flourish Award 2017 are:

David Armes, Jess Bugler, Ji Yue Deng, Sarah Duncan, Tracy Hill, Clare Hynds, Melanie King, Pierre Antoine Martin, Liz K Miller, Clare Phelan, Roy Willingham, Susan Wright.
