Anna Peake, Hills Road Sixth Form Colleg



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.
