Images from the Buxton Spa Prize 2017

Yesterday Purple and Grey held another successful Artists Networking event and this time we had the great pleasure of hosting it at the superb Green Man Gallery.
Attendees enjoyed listening to Caroline Small explain the ethos behind the artist led gallery as well as taking part in some fun and winning the odd prize.

Talking of prizes we had the great pleasure of feasting our eyes on some fabulous work by artists from all over the country who had submitted work to the Buxton Spa Prize.

The competition, now in it's fourth year, is for artists working in any 2D media (except photography) who are over the age of 17 on 1st April 2017. The winning artist  receives a grand prize of £5000. The Buxton Spa Prize 2017 is sponsored by ‘The Trevor Osborne Charitable Trust’.

The Buxton Spa Prize is also the home of 
The Harold Riley ​Sketchbook Prize. This Prize is an open competition for artists submitting a single sketchbook completed during the last year.​​​
Below are images from the show along with snap shots of the prize winners. for more details head over to the Buxton Spa Prizes Website.
