Yorkshire Artist and Portrait Painter Hannah Ostapjuk was shortlisted for several prizes through New Lights 2013 including The Valeria Sykes Prize.
The Private View on 20th September was a well attended event and a very enjoyable evening. A room full of extremely talented emerging artists’ work. I received some great comments about my portraits. It is fantastic to know that the viewer can see what I am aiming to achieve in my paintings, that they see an originality, and something not seen before in oil painting and portraiture.
If you wish to visit the New Lights Art Prize Exhibition at the Mercer Gallery, Harrogate, it is on until the 17th November 2013.
