Shortlisted for the Woolgather Art Prize 2011


Liz West has been shortlisted for the Woolgather Art Prize 2011.
The Woolgather Art Prize is an experimental showcase of contemporary artists based in West Yorkshire. Aiming to provide an accessible platform for artworks and hoping to celebrate the unresolved, the transitional, possibly the ridiculous. Ultimately championing the 'what if' ?
Submission is free and a selection of shortlisted artists' work will be presented in a Leeds city centre show in the spring of 2011. Throughout the exhibition the works will be voted for by the viewing public, and then prizes of £500, £250 and £150 will be awarded to the chosen artists. The money is a gesture to assist towards the ongoing endeavors of a creative lifestyle.
All shortlisted artists will contribute to a collective development in the form of a publication for the show, as a means of creating a more involving illustration of the event. An engaging website will also be available, aiming to create an active dialogue between the artists and audiences through videos, blogs and comments.
The project is self-funded by artists and assisted by the generosity of others. In keeping with this spirit all the exhibited works will be given away to the public, whether to be cherished in the home, or just collect dust in the attic.
