As part of showing our support for the next generation of creative talent across the UK and encouraging professional development within a creative society we have been working with Matt Roberts Arts to develop a new award sponsored by our Artist Surfaces Department.

The John Jones Award for Contemporary Painting will be launched this year as part of Matt Robert’s annual open submission exhibition Salon09. The award is eligible for anyone who enters Salon 09 working with spectrum of painting in its broadest sense. We are looking for work which shows promise for future development including unusual, explorative technically and conceptually innovative work that has the potential to challenge the perception of painting. Our award is intended to be a 12 month process offering support in terms of professional development and advice on artwork presentation as well as an opportunity for the artist to exhibit for 2 months in Projection and a monetary prize of £500 for the winner and £200 credit to use our services The winner of the award will also be offered a show in projection for 2 months.
