Providing sustained critical support for exceptional early-career painters.
The Jerwood Painting Fellowships are a biennial opportunity for UK based painters within five years of beginning their practice and were launched in 2010. They provide exceptional early-career painters with sustained and specialised critical support and are selected through a national open call. Three artists each receive mentoring from an established painter over a year-long period and a bursary of £10,000 to support experimentation and the making of new work for a national touring exhibition.
