Surrey Artist of the Year 2019

21 September to 2 November 2019

Surrey Artist of the Year 2019

The New Ashgate Gallery invites members of the public to come and vote for their favourite artist.

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, all offering different materials and techniques: painting, printmaking, glass, textiles and mixed media.

The shortlisted artists are: Clare Bowen, Orlanda Broom, Jennifer Court, Diana Croft, Clare Edworthy, Penny Fleet, Robyn Horsburgh, Christine Hopkins, David Johns, Will Johns, Julie Noles, Philip Ryland, Penny Webb, Pippa Ward and Abigail Wicking.

Again, during the exhibition, until 18th 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 2019 on 18th at 7pm. 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.

Diana Croft

Diana Croft's work is rich in colour and pattern, responding directly to familiar landscapes like the North and South Downs and the Surrey Hills, as well as places she has visited abroad. Her recent travels to France, Chile, Argentina, and Mexico have provided a wealth of inspiration for her intricate linocuts. She aims to evoke the essence of these places, using exaggerated curves and vibrant colours to create rhythmic, stylised images.
Diana is currently captivated by reduction linocuts, a technique that requires meticulous planning and precise execution to produce multi-layered prints. This method allows her to explore complex patterns and colours, resulting in absorbing and challenging works of art.
Diana Croft is based in Dorking, Surrey.
