10 Gales Gallery with the aim of supporting and promoting art students and emerging artists, is delighted to announce the opening of '10 Gales Prize 2011', an art competition dedicated to recent graduates and students in their final year of their Ba and Ma.
Over the course of three consecutive weeks, from 8th to 27th March 2011, our white gallery space will be articulated with three group shows featuring the newest talents from the best art universities in the UK.
Having received over 200 hundred submissions and after a very long consideration, 40 emerging artists from very different backgrounds and practices, will be competing in this edition of the '10 Gales Prize', for the final award of a solo show at 10 Gales Gallery.
During the Private Views of each group show the public will have the chance to vote for their favourite artworks. Taking into account the public's choice, the selection panel will decide by consensus which artists deserve to be submitted to the final.
The '10 Gales Prize Award Ceremony' will be held on Sunday 3rd April 2011, from 19:00 to 22:00 Hrs, in which the finalists and the winner of the '10 Gales Prize' will be announced.
