2 new awards for MA Fine Art – the Artists’ Collecting Society Award and the Tony Carter Award

We were delighted to award two new prestigious prizes to two of our most recent MA Fine Art graduates at our recent ceremony.

Flora Yukhnovich was named the first recipient of the Artists’ Collecting Society / City & Guilds of London Art School Studio Award. The prize consists of £7,000 towards establishing a studio in the year following graduation, as well as membership to ACS and a one-year subscription to Bridgeman Studio.

The award was presented by Viscountess Bridgeman CBE, Founder and Managing Director of ACS, who said of Flora: ‘I love the reference to the rococo period, her masterful use of wonderful roseate colours and her experimentation with the triptych design, her ambitious counterbalance between light and shade and the detail in her work.’

At the same ceremony, Gwenyth Fugard was named the first recipient of the Tony Carter Award. Created in 2017 in memory of Tony Carter (1943-2016), the Art School’s Principal from 2000 to 2014 and an admired artist, teacher and thinker, the award recognises Tony’s belief that tactile visual knowledge operates at the heart of all creative practices. Gwenyth was selected by Tony’s wife, artist Wendy Smith, for her work that demonstrated excellence in the use of materials and processes, a principle that remains central to the Art School’s ethos.
