The Griffin Gallery is delighted to announce the second year of the Griffin Art Prize and calls for entries to this exciting award for painting and drawing, open to emerging UK based artists. The Griffin Art Prize 2012 brought opportunities and exposure to all the short listed artists. Many sold work and had offers of exhibitions; most notably, winner Alzbeta Jaresova was included in the Catlin guide of the 40 most promising graduates of 2012. The overall winner will be awarded a six month working residency in the Studio Building, London W11, to develop an individual exhibition for the Griffin Gallery in September 2014. Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris will offer sponsorship deals to selected short listed artists worth £250 each. Closing date for applications is midnight Wednesday 31 July.
