The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation presents New Scottish Artists (20 Apr – 6 May 2017)

Opening Reception: Weds 19 Apr, 7–9pm

DRAF Studio hosts a curated selection of works from Scottish art schools by the Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation.

New Scottish Artists presents artists graduating in 2016 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (Dundee), Edinburgh College of Art, Glasgow School of Art and Gray’s School of Art (Aberdeen).

Works by Camille Bernard, Kitty Hall, Clara Hastrup, Felix Carr, Laura Gaiger, Frances Rokhlin and George Ridgway.

The exhibition also showcases the work of Camille Bernard, this year’s winner of the Fleming-Wyfold Bursary. Currently in its fourth year, the Fleming-Wyfold Bursary is an annual award for an artist exhibiting in the graduate shows of the five Scottish art schools. The winner receives £10,000 with an additional £4,000 production fee for a new work, and a year’s mentoring with independent curator Susanna Beaumont.

The judges were James Knox (Director, Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation), Vincent Honoré (Director, DRAF); Susanna Beaumont (independent curator), Sara Barker (artist) and Julie Ann Delaney (Curator, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art).

The Fleming–Wyfold Bursary and exhibition New Scottish Artists are run in collaboration with the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh.
