This summer, to inspire young creative minds, we ran our third annual summer art competition. We asked entrants to create a painting, drawing, sculpture, assemblage, photograph or even performance that draws from one of the hundreds of artworks in our collection and we have been blown away by the number and calibre of entrants.
With thanks to our judges, Sophie Ridsdale-Smith, Exhibitions & Collections Assistant at the Lightbox, Woking, and Mrs Robin Fleming, a long term supporter of the Fleming Wyfold Art Foundation, along with James Knox, our Director, we are delighted to announce the winners.
First prizes of £50 Cass Art Vouchers go to:
Under 11 years: Thor Roberts, aged 6, inspired by John Bellany's The Ettrick Shepard.
16-18 years: Sophia Hamilton, aged 16, for her series Summer in Scotland.
Our runners up are:
11 - 15 years: Kyle Bambridge, aged 13, and Naina Surana, aged 15, both inspired by Colourist still lives.
16-18 years: Eleri Davies, aged 16, inspired by Eleanor Selwyn Lovett's Lizandro, Portugal.
Our runners up will receive a copy of our publication A History of Scottish Art, for future inspiration. Thank you to all our entrants and we look forward to receiving future creations next summer!
