North Devon’s White Moose gallery is just one of three venues in the UK to host the 2013 Griffin Art Prize exhibition.

Launched in 2012, the Griffin Art Prize focuses on emerging UK artists specifically working in painting and drawing.

The winner of the 2013 Griffin Art Prize was collaborative artist partnership Luke George and Elizabeth Rose.

“Luke George and Elizabeth Rose’s large exploratory canvases play with colour, textures and mark-making, and explore the heart and nature of pigments and their properties. The artists work on the canvas separately, each taking time to reflect before passing it back and forth to each other until a mutual sense of completion has been achieved. “

White Moose directors Julie Gavin and Stella Levy – who will also be celebrating the first anniversary of their innovative arts partnership White Moose this March – said:  “We were delighted to find the standard of all shortlisted artists so consistently high – the exhibition gives a truly exciting insight into the breadth of talent emerging in the UK right now.”

The ten shortlisted Griffin Art Prize artists exhibiting at White Moose are: Eleanor Bedlow; Susannah Douglas; Helen Frank; L George and E Rose; Rae Hicks; Emily Moore; Scott Robertson; Yuhwa Son; Mary Wintour; and Nicole Wong.

The Griffin Art Prize exhibition was first held in November 2013 at the Griffin Gallery, London W11.

It will be at the White Moose, Devon, from Friday, February 21 to Saturday, March 29 2014.
