FUAM Graduate Art Prize 2013

New student prize and special exhibition showcasing new talent from the BA finalists at the School of Design and the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, supported by FUAM.

7 - 31 August 2013

In recognition of the high level of excellence of art students at the University of Leeds, the Gallery has launched an art prize and special exhibition for recent graduates from the university's undergraduate Fine Art and Design degree courses. The Prize is generously supported by the Friends of University Art and Music (Leeds), as well as the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and the School of Design.

The expert panel of three judges consists of Lisa Le Feuvre, Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, critic and art journalist John Douglas Millar, and Professor Vivien Jones, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of Leeds.

The judges have chosen 4 finalists, based on the artwork they presented in their undergraduate degree shows in June.

The finalists are

  • Akeelah Bertram
  • Elizabeth Charnock
  • Kim Diamond
  • Ellen Lapper

The four finalists have been invited to exhibit a selection of their artwork at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, in a joint display, which will open to the public at a special opening reception and run for four weeks from 7 to 31 August 2013.

The 'best in show' student artist of the year will receive £250 and the runners-up £100 each to aid them in their developing career as artists.

The FUAM Graduate Prize Show 2013 will be the highlight of the region's art calendar and a fine opportunity to see the best new art of the year.
