Storycatchers award prize at The Harley Gallery Open Exhibition
We were delighted to sponsor a prize at The Harley Open art competition this summer, hosted and run by our neighbours The Harley Gallery – and even more delighted to award the inaugural Storycatchers Prize to Clay Smith, for his piece, ‘Mediterranean Altarpiece’.
We entered the judging process looking for something positive and uplifting – or something that couldn’t be ignored. Clay’s work is the latter – it’s uncomfortable, foreboding and provocative, but of the 700+ entries in the exhibition, all of an amazingly high standard, his mixed media piece was the one we kept walking back to.
Thanks to The Harley Gallery for inviting us to award a prize, and well done to all the artists taking part. The quality and breadth of work on show was hugely inspiring.
