This evening saw the opening of Northern Lights, a celebration of the prize exhibition’s tenth year in operation.
New Light was initially established to provide exhibition opportunities for artists in the region (especially those using traditional media), and the show at Saul Hay was held to present new work from previous prize winners. Unfortunately due to an administrative error I was marked as not being able to participate in the show and my piece was therefore missed in the catalogue.
You can view my piece “Lockdown 2.0” along with work of other prize winners Diana Armstrong, Karolina Szymkiewicz, David Chandler, Christopher Cook, Joshua Waterhouse, Anna Poulton, Joanna Whittle, Sarah Harris, James Naughton, Vic Harris, Ian Brooks, Nat Quinn, Mandy Payne, Josie Jenkins, Emma Lawrenson, Jo Taylor, Deborah Grice, Neil Bousfield, Rhea Sherriff-Hammond, Gavin Watson, Jan Huntley Peace, Linnet Rubaya, Christian Alexander Bailey, Alan Stones and Ben Ark.
The show will run from from 26th March – 17th April 2022.
In celebration of 10 years of New Light, a retrospective in collaboration with the Saul Hay Gallery has been arranged (opening on March 26th). The exhibition will host work of New Light’s award winning artists spanning the last ten years. For the show, prize winners from the last 5 Prize Exhibitions were invited to submit work for inclusion (of which I am one having won the Norman Ackroyd prize for printmaking in 2013).
The exhibition will also feature work by Nat Quinn, Josie Jenkins, Mandy Payne, Christopher Cook and 2020 winner Joanna Whittle, amongst others. An online catalogue of the show can be viewed here although I was mistakenly marked as not taking part even though I was so please ignore that bit! Entries include paintings, prints, ceramics and sculpture across a range of disciplines with wide ranging subject matters.
It promises to be a diverse and thought provoking exhibition. Hope to see you there!
