£1,000 WELLS ART PRIZE ON OF­FER

EDP Norfolk - - The Mardler -

The trans­for­ma­tion of Wells Malt­ings into a new her­itage, learn­ing, com­mu­nity and arts cen­tre is tak­ing an­other step for­ward with the cre­ation of a year-long her­itage art trail which will be part of our open­ing fes­tiv­i­ties in spring 2018.

Peo­ple of the Shore and Sea Trail will fea­ture East Anglian artists and be pro­fes­sion­ally cu­rated. Now the Wells Malt­ings Trust, sup­ported by the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund, is look­ing for artists to cre­ate orig­i­nal work for the project with a £1,000 prize on of­fer. Artists are asked to look to the town’s her­itage and cul­ture for in­spi­ra­tion, in­clud­ing sto­ries like the lifeboat dis­as­ter, the life of a whelker, or the roles of women in the town.

The se­lected artist will work along­side pro­fes­sional cu­ra­tors to place each new work along the beach mile, or in the town, or at the Wells Malt­ings it­self. A prize of £1,000 will be awarded to one artist by a panel of in­de­pen­dent judges for an ex­cep­tional work re­flect­ing Wells’ her­itage. www.wells­malt­ings.org.uk
