The Royal Society of Sculptors presents: The Gilbert Bayes Award

04 May 2024 - 01 June 2024

The Art House welcomes back our growing partnership with The Royal Society of Sculptors. Perfectly situated in Wakefield, a place with a renowned reputation as a city of sculpture, we will present The Gilbert Bayes Award (the 2023 winners exhibition); a collaborative exhibition bringing some of the most outstanding practices of artists who work in the field of 3D production.

The annual Gilbert Bayes Award is offered by Royal Society of Sculptors to provide vital support for early-career sculptors during what can be a difficult transition from their studies to professional practice. The award is open to sculptors of any age or nationality, with or without formal training and working in any style of media, and is generously supported by the Gilbert Bayes Charitable Trust. EAch year the winners are selected by a guest judge.

Selected by artist, founder and technologist Harry Yeff (Reeps100), this exhibition brings together the 2023 awardees, Alexandra Searle, Alice Sheppard Fidler, Erika Trotzig, Flora Bradwell, Kelly Marie O’Brien, Louise Ward Morris, Nathan Anthony, Ned Prizeman, Polam Chan, Sophie Cunningham and Srabani Ghosh.
