BA Fine Art Graduate Shortlisted for Woon Art Prize
Having been shortlisted for the Woon Foundation Painting and Sculpture Art Prize, graduate Ana Gold’s work is currently on display at Northumbria University’s Gallery North.
Gold said: “I am delighted about the opportunities that the Woon Prize has to offer. It is an exciting competition as a young graduate, as a way to enter the art world and continue my education, especially after the productive and critical years at Central Saint Martins.”
The prize was initiated by Mr Wee Teng Woon, a keen art collector and graduate of Northumbria University. Each year, his family’s foundation fund three major prizes and discretionary consolation prizes for final-year fine art, painting and sculpture undergraduates.
The first prize is a £20,000 bursary to fund a fellowship at BxNU Institute for Contemporary Art. The winner will have access to dedicated studio space and a high-profile mentor. Second and third prizes of £9,000 and £6,000 will also be awarded.
All the shortlisted artists’ work will be on display in the Gallery North until 19 September. Ana Gold will also be in a show at the Anise Gallery, London, from 28 September 2014.
