'Arm Up Man', by Clare Murray - finalist 2007
What Artists Have Said
‘What a wonderful show it was yesterday. Having seen the pictures in the flesh, they looked even more impressive than they did on the website. …. Those who received awards must feel a very real and deserved sense of achievement in winning a competition where the standard is so very high.’
Colin Harrow - Former finalist.
‘Your web site is brilliant - so easy to get around.’
Barbara Tomlinson - Former entrant.
‘Having just arrived home after the visit to London for the EAC Art Awards presentation evening I feel that I should let you know what an enjoyable experience it was. Congratulations to all who had a hand in the impeccable organisation of the event…’
Brian Wozencroft - Former finalist.
‘It's been an excellent competition with people being given timely reminders and up to date information.’
Diana Hudson - Former finalist.
‘I came away from the EAC Awards very inspired and enthused, determined to get my work seen by a wider public.’
Leslie Child - Former winner of the Winsor & Newton Prize for Watercolour.
‘My experience is that as one ages, and one’s capabilities diminish, participating in exhibitions is exhilarating, and much improves one’s attitudes, which sometimes, obviously, can be subject to a mild degree of depression.’
Archibald Campbell - Former highly commended entrant.
‘I keep painting, and I hope I can go on painting, because it’s the most important thing in my life.’
Nan Leifer - Former winner of the Peverel Prize for Still Life.
‘Talent doesn’t decrease with age, but opportunities do…… I believe your format for entering the Awards is most helpful……your venues are good, wonderful to have your work displayed in a good London gallery.’
June Martin - Entrant since 2006.
‘The three entries from Jenner House (last) year were all from 90+ aged people, and to be able to contribute, from fading eyesight and shaking hands, a pleasing visual effort, is no mean talent.’
Lilian Smith - Entrant since 2005 and highly commended in 2009
‘I am very keen to see this delightful exhibition continued – and more competition will force me to hone my skills even more finely.’
David Tribe - Former entrant in 2007 and winner of the 2008 ‘Artist’ subscription prize.
‘I have always found the exhibitions well-run, efficient and welcoming….. I am 93 ½ and ever-hopeful.’
Agnes Bantock - Entrant since 2006.
