Now in its fifth year the FUAM Graduate Art Prize, supported by the Friends of University Art & Music (FUAM), rewards the artistic excellence of the top students completing studies in Design and Fine Art at the University of Leeds in 2017. The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery will host an exhibition showcasing the work of this year's four finalists, which will preview on Tuesday 8 August 2017, 6pm.
Degree shows at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and the School of Design at the University of Leeds take place around campus in June 2017. After visiting these, a panel of three judges from around the Yorkshire region select four graduating students as finalists for The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery's prestigious FUAM Graduate Art Prize Exhibition 2017.
The finalists for 2017 are:
Zoe Carlon (Fine Art)
Olivia Loker (Fine Art)
Lucy Davidson (Art and Design)
Miranda Jones (Art and Design)
In September, the judges will return to select the overall winner of the FUAM Graduate Art Prize. The 'Best in Show' graduating student artist of the year will receive £250. Each of the runners-up will receive £100 each to aid them in their developing career as artists. The prizes will be awarded by FUAM in an awards ceremony on 27 September 2017.
