This year FAD has helped to set up an emerging art award with Freerange in conjunction with Degree Art & Cass Art.
The award has been designed to support ten young artists in the year following their graduation; five exhibitors from each Art Week are selected.
The overall standard this week has been really high. The final (and very tough) decision was made by our judging panel of industry experts; Mark Westall (founder and creative director of FAD), Elinor Olisa (Co-Founder of DegreeArt), James Bidwell (CEO of Cass Art), Ryan Stanier (Director of The Other Art Fair) and Tamsin O’Hanlon (Founder and Creative Director of Free Range).
And the winners of the inaugural Free Range Emerging Art Award Week 1 Are:
