The winner of the 2019 Bursary award will be announced by April
The festival has thousands of visitors and the chance to talk about my work with so many people has given me more confidence and clarity about what I am trying to achieve. Winning the award was a turning point in my career and I cannot recommend enough applying for this opportunity.
Nicola Wiltshire 2017 Bursary Award
Nicola’s comment sums up the success of our Bursary Award. This will be its twelfth year and we will be continuing to offer the advantages of a the award, avenue and associated costs: the value of the Bursary is about £1000. The award allows a beginning artist to exhibit to an audience far in excess of the number who would visit an art gallery exhibition.
As we encourage the winner to be present during the Festival the award-winner also has the opportunity to meet buyers and establish contacts.
Consolidating our belief in the value of a Bursary Award which allows the artist to exhibit at the Pittenweem Arts Festival, we are pleased to see the following Bursary Award winners returning as exhibiting artists in 2019. Sophia, will be exhibiting at Ovenstone 109, taking advantage of the airy and spacious venue; Thomas returns to an inside room this time at David Henderson’s venue hosting multiple artists, at the foot of Abbeywall Road; Jill will also be there.
