FUAM Graduate Art Prize Exhibition 2018
15 Aug 2018 - 3 Nov 2018
Now in its sixth year, the FUAM Graduate Art Prize, supported by the Friends of University Art & Music (FUAM) rewards the artistic excellence of students completing BA studies in Art and Design and Fine Art at the University of Leeds in 2018.
This exhibition showcases the work of this year's four finalists. The finalists were selected by an expert panel of judges from the Degree shows at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies and School of Design at the University of Leeds.
The judging panel comprises Nigel Walsh, Contemporary Art Curator at Leeds Art Gallery, Amy Charlesworth, Lecturer in Art History with the Open University, and Luke Windsor, Deputy Dean of Arts, Humanities and Cultures at the University of Leeds.
This year's finalists are:
Beth Windmill (BA Art and Design)
Hannah Marsh (BA Fine Art)
Katie Clark (BA Fine Art)
Tayisiya Shovgelia (BA Art and Design)
In September, the judges will return to select the overall winner of the FUAM Graduate Art Prize. The 'Best in Show' graduating student artist of the year will receive £250. Each of the runners-up will receive £100 each to aid them in their developing career as artists. The prizes will be awarded by FUAM in an awards ceremony on 26 September 2018.
