To mentor, nurture and support the professional artistic growth of emerging and early career artists across the Visual and Applied Arts
The Jane Phillips Award is a memorial to Jane Phillips (1957 – 2011) Mission Gallery’s first Director.
Launched at Mission Gallery in 2011, the award is intended as a legacy to Jane’s passion for mentoring and nurturing talent, consistently supporting emerging and early career artists across the Visual and Applied Arts in Wales and beyond.
The Jane Phillips Award has been successful and is evolving, responding to the artistic community and forming new partnerships. We wish to develop and broaden the scope of the award by introducing two new exciting prizes, plus a year long programme of Residencies which will exist alongside and complement, the main Jane Phillips Exhibition Award.
