dot-art Schools, an inter-school art competition for year 6 and year 9 students across the Liverpool City Region, has announced a panel of judges who will create the shortlist of this year’s winners.
The judges are: Sandra Penketh, Director of Art Galleries at National Museums Liverpool; Jenny Porter, Project Manager, Metal and Liverpool Art Prize; and Sarah Pickstone, winner of the John Moores Painting Prize in 2012.
Beth Harvey, Project Manager of dot-art Schools, says “We’re so excited to have such a prestigious panel of judges, for the school children to have their work reviewed by such experienced people in the art world is a great achievement.”
Jenny Porter says “Its a real honour to have been invited to be a judge of the dot-art Schools competition. Having worked with the Liverpool Art Prize shortlisted artists over the past five years, its really inspiring to see the younger talented artists of Liverpool who may soon become future Art Prize winners. Good Luck to all involved”
But it’s you who gets the final say. Voting opens on the 31st March for the public to decide which artwork from each school will be exhibited in the Walker Art Gallery.
Winners of the dot-art Schools’ art competition will have their work displayed among the Walker’s world-famous collection from 17th May to 8th June 2014.
