Surrey Artist of the Year 2022

24 September to 5 November 2022

Surrey Artist of the Year 2022

Come & vote for your favourite Surrey artist and support the local talent with us.

The Surrey Artist of the Year competition is a partnership between the New Ashgate and the Surrey Artists Open Studios to celebrate the wealth of creative talent in Surrey. Starting in 2009; this aspirational exhibition offers a collective of local quality arts and craft as voted for by the public during open studio visits. The top scoring artists come together for a programme of events. There is a wide variety of artworks on show, including different materials and techniques such as painting, drawing, textiles, ceramics and paper art.

The shortlisted artists are: Cathy Brett, Jane Browne, Eli Delbaere, Grace Ellen, Emma Godden, Keira Graham, Luke Adam Hawker, Hue and Bristle, Denise Jaques, David Johns, Sophie Kathleen, Faye Mayo, Vicky O'Leary, Jo Olney, Esther Pritchard, Laura Ritchie, Louise Rowe, Lindsey Southworth, Dawn Thornhill and Angie Wallace.

Again, during the exhibition, until 14th October, 12noon, members of the public are encouraged to vote for an artist; and the artist with the most votes from public and judging panel, is named Surrey Artist of the Year 2022. The winner receives a bursary of £1,000, a solo show at the New Ashgate Gallery and a complementary Winner's Stand at the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair.

The season includes workshops for adults, families and artists - please contact us for information.

The competition is organised by New Ashgate Gallery in partnership with the Surrey Artists Open Studios. It is supported by the Contemporary Art Fairs.
