Happy Easter! Okay, slightly jumping the gun, but with these competitions to prepare and enter, this month will literally fly by!
March was a busy month for me as I prepared for a couple of competitions, and often having a deadline to work towards is the motivator you need to push yourself and create new work.
The competition highlight this month is the John Ruskin Prize. Part of the Big Draw, each year this competition sets a theme for artists to respond to and this years’ theme is ‘Hand & Eye: Master of All Trades in The Age of Jack and refers to the Artist as Polymath. Open to a range of interpretations and approaches, the theme is intended to lend itself to responses from artists and makers whose work celebrates the opportunity to marry diverse materials and disciplines.’
