Artists and Illustrators - Artist of the Year 2015

The exhibition of artwork by the 50 artists shortlisted for the Artist of the Year 2015 Prize sponsored by Artists and Illustrators Magazine opened yesterday at the Mall Galleries and is on display until the end of Saturday 27th February.

The "Artist of the Year 2015" gets £1,000 in cash and gallery representation at Panter & Hall. You can see the rest of the prizes on offer on the competition web page.

I would have told you that you can vote for the winner - but the prizewinners are being announced tonight!

The artwork is impressive and colourful. The exhibition is definitely well worth a visit - especially if you are an aspiring artist wanting to try your luck in this competition in 2016.

Selected Artists

While virtually every artist has a website it was interesting to note that not every artist thinks it worth creating an "about the artist" page on their website.
