FRANCESCA BLOMFIELD/ ARCHIE FRANKS/ DALE LEWIS
PHOEBE UNWIN/ JANE HARRIS/ DAN COOMBS
The group exhibition Jerwood Painting Fellowships 2016 presents fresh new works by the three outstanding early career painters chosen as the 2016 Jerwood Painting Fellows: Francesca Blomfield, Archie Franks and Dale Lewis. They were selected from over 400 applicants to undertake a yearlong mentorship with three eminent UK painters: Phoebe Unwin, Jane Harris and Dan Coombs respectively. Each Fellow also received a £10,000 bursary to support the development of their work and ideas.
This is the third edition of the Jerwood Painting Fellowships, launched by Jerwood Charitable Foundation in 2010 to provide critical support for exceptional painters embarking on their professional careers. The works, which are showing for the first time, demonstrate a significant leap forward for each of the Fellows.
