Rewarding representation

Seven artists in the running to take award for representational painting.

By Claire Ramtuhul

The shortlist for the annual Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize for Representational Painting has been announced. Sponsored by the Painter-Stainers company and the Lynn Foundation (amongst other organisations with a strong history of supporting fine art), the prize rewards outstanding skill in draughtsmanship and representational painting.

The artists shortlisted for the award are:

Peter Brown NEAC
Peter Clossick
Naomi Grant
Christopher Green
Rachel Ross
Melissa Scott-Miller RP NEAC
Antony Williams

The prize is now in its seventh year. The selectors for 2012 include Andrew Wilton (Visiting Research Fellow at Tate Britain) and artists Chris Orr and William Packer. Receiving over a thousand entries, the judges were tasked with whittling the works down to the 98 which will be exhibited at the Mall Galleries from 28 March – 5 April. The selectors said: “We are delighted this year to have been able to select a larger exhibition demonstrating the breadth and skill of representational painting in the UK”. The exhibition will feature work in a variety of media, including paintings in oil, watercolour and ink. The winner of this year’s award will take away not only the prestige that comes with the title, but also the tidy sum of £15,000.
