Following the Signature Art Prize Gala and award night, Trinity Art Gallery is delighted to host The Signature Art Prize 2018 Exhibition in collaboration with DegreeArt.com and Contemporary Collective, the latest group exhibition featuring the winners and finalists of The Signature Art Prize 2018/19.
The Signature Art Prize was established by gallery Directors Isobel Beauchamp and Elinor Olisa in 2007 to celebrate and identify emerging artists’ ‘Signature Style’. They define an artist’s ‘signature style’ as being “that which makes an artist unique; a combination of process and method, contributed to by the artist’s own personality which results in a piece that is unique and specific to them.” With their intuitive knowledge of the contemporary art market, they endeavour to fully capture and develop each individual artist's 'brand'.
Those who visit university degree shows will be aware of the remarkable talent and high standards on show; The Signature Art Prize aims to capture this energy and assist young artists in exhibiting and promoting their work in an often challenging art world.
Previous winners have gone on to achieve great success and industry acclaim, with their artwork being included in public collections as well as having the opportunity to showcase in stunning locations.
