AboutJerwood Painting Fellowships 2013 is an exhibition of new work by three exceptional emerging painters: 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.
