In support of young artists and students during lockdown, we launched an Isolation Artwork Competition.
Here we host a virtual exhibition of ten shortlisted artworks created during the lockdown, selected by the panel of judges:
Rebecca Hossack, Director of Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery and Arts Society Accredited Lecturer
Charlie Waite, landscape photographer and Arts Society Accredited Lecturer
Dan Evans, art historian and Arts Society Accredited Lecturer
Cherry-Anne Russell, Volunteer Head of Arts Volunteering, The Arts Society
The shortlisted works are those that best reflect the artist's experience of lockdown.
Charlie Waite comments: 'What a huge privilege to have been asked to evaluate such wonderfully varied and ingenious artworks. I hugely admire the imagination and interpretation that each artist has put into their work.'
We now open the competition up to a membership vote with the overall winner being announced on 7th July. The winner will have their artwork featured on The Arts Society's 2021 membership card and receive a £50 Cass Art voucher.
Voting has now closed. The winner will be announced on 7th July 2020.
