Rosie: “a fun and vibrant exhibition that spoke to the experiences of many young women today”
Cass Art x University of Brighton Studio Award, Phoenix Art Space
I’m lucky enough to have an art gallery just down the road from me, so on my lunch break I popped into Phoenix Art Space, Brighton. There the main gallery hosted all six recipients of the Cass Art x University of Brighton Studio Award, six emerging females artists; Liberty Cheverall, Hattie Malcomson, Emily Moore, Miranda Forrester, Sophie Hulf and Jessie Yates. The artists explored painting, sculpture, illustration and tufting and their works complimented each other beautifully to create a fun and vibrant exhibition that spoke to the experiences of many young women today.
I later found that artist Liberty Cheverall had one the Cass Art and the University of Brighton Studio Award. She said “I have been able to use this time to explore, learn, make mistakes and figure things out as a working artist. Having the space to split my creative outlet and home life, especially after the past few years, is what I feel so thankful for. Not having to feel as overwhelmed from the financial pressures, as well as the amazing team (who have not only been so immensely welcoming), but have supported me so generously too, makes me incredibly grateful.”
