Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA) is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by three exceptional emerging painters, the 2013 Jerwood Painting Fellows: Anthony Faroux,
Susan Sluglett and Sophia Starling.
This is the second edition of the Jerwood Painting Fellowships, an initiative launched in 2010, designed to provide crucial time and critical support to promising emerging painters in the early stages of their professional practice. The Fellowships offer three artists a bursary of £10,000 coupled with a year-long mentoring relationship of critical and
professional development support. Anthony Faroux, Susan Sluglett and Sophia Starling were selected from over 300 applications for the outstanding quality and potential of their work, and partnered by the 2013 mentors: Fabian Peake, Marcus Harvey and Mali Morris RA, respectively.
Through the Jerwood Visual Arts programme of exhibitions and events, as well as their wider projects, the Jerwood Charitable Foundation is committed to supporting artists
early on in their careers, placing particular value on building and developing peer and mentoring relationships. This level of support is invaluable for emerging artists, particularly within the current financial landscape of the arts. Shonagh Manson, Director of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, comments:
âThe themes arising from this past year are brave ones; of risk, challenging habit and expectation and what has come before. But the careful founding of these relationships by each individual has meant that this has been possible in an
environment with just the right blend of support and challenge. It's an alchemical mix, and one each participant can take credit for creating. As a result, the works they have produced for exhibition have benefited from an intense period of focus, conversation, reflection and making. And they have risen to that challenge.'
A group exhibition of new work will be on display as part of the JVA programme at Jerwood Space, London from 13 March 28 April 2013, before touring to venues within the UK,
including BayArt, Cardiff and The Gallery at NUCA, Norwich.
