Clare Thatcher would like to thank you so much for all who voted for her painting ‘Grey Rock’. Unfortunately her painting did not make the shortlist this time. Reaching the long list was very rewarding especially given the high calibre of the competition. It generated an incredible amount of activity on social media which was fun and great for her profile.
Clare Thatcher’s painting ‘Grey Rock’ has made the long list for The Secret Art Prize, which is run by Curious Duke Gallery in London. This is great news as the gallery would provide an amazing environment to showcase my work.
As my painting has made it to the long list it is eligible for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ and the winner will directly make it through to the final selection. The final works will be selected by this year’s judges, Radio 1 Trevor Nelson, artist Mark Powell, director & curator Anna Smithson, art historian Ana Bambic Kostov, director Frankie Shea and writer Anna McNay.
Voting runs until 28 August and you can vote here
