Young Masters Art Prize
This unique initiative aims to highlight emerging artists of any gender, age, or nationality, working in any media. Young Masters celebrates artistic skill and innovation, with awareness of the Old Masters and art of the past. We strive to offer talented artists global visibility and support.
In 2014 the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramic Prize was added to focus more attention on the growing interest in the collection of contemporary craft. 2017 saw the launch of the inaugural Young Masters Emerging Women Award, and the fifth edition and 10th Anniversary Exhibition of the Prize took place in October 2019.
Another recent Young Masters initiative is the curatorial platform Focus on the Female developed in 2021 as an artistic and philanthropic antidote to the impact of the COVID pandemic on women. Focus on the Female continues as a regular project within the Gallery’s exhibition programme.
