Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust : First Decade
Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust: First Decade celebrates the work of the first ten artists to be awarded the prize in a commemorative group exhibition at Marlborough Fine Art.
The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust was established in 2006 following the death of Miss Valerie Beston, a former director of the gallery, to support artists at the beginning of their careers. The charity has collaborated with the Royal College of Art to award an annual prize to a postgraduate Painting student.
Curator Catherine Lampert and Gallerist Pilar Ordovas have selected the winners from the RCA Summer degree show. The prize comprises a studio for a year at SPACE, a financial contribution towards materials, tutorial support provided by the RCA and an exhibition at the end of the year.
