The Cynthia Corbett Gallery announces a new strand of its international prize, the Young Masters Art Prize, to profile and reward the work of an emerging female artist. The Young Masters Emerging Woman Art Prize forms part of the fourth edition of the Young Masters Art Prize, which celebrates contemporary artists who pay homage to the skill and innovation of the Old Masters and art of the past.
The Young Masters Emerging Woman Art Prize will be judged by a high profile panel of judges, including the Chair of the Association of Women Art Dealers Sylvie Gormezano and Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Executive Board, Head of Corporate Branding & Communications and Chairperson of the Swarovski Foundation.
They will select a female winner from all the Young Masters Art Prize entries and will present them with an award of £1,000, which has been made possible thanks to an anonymous donor.
Cynthia Corbett, Gallerist and Founder of the Young Masters Art Prize comments: ‘There are still challenges facing female artists, particularly at the beginning of their careers. I am thrilled that through this new strand of the Young Masters Art Prize we will be able to give support and exposure to a talented artist at such a crucial stage in their artistic development.’
