Artinliverpool Purchase Prize for Hope University 2011 – Winner

This is the 5th year that have purchased a work by one of the graduating fine artists in Hope University’s degree show at the Cornerstone. This year’s show (excellent as usual) has finished already but a few days before it opened we had our own private viewing and chose this painting by Rebecca Johnson. We liked her work immediately but we were also impressed by the thought and research that had obviously gone into it.

Rebecca plans to stay as a working artist in the city so we may well see more of her work in the future.
