Porthmeor Young Artists Competition 2019

The Porthmeor Young Artists Exhibition and Competition was aimed at promoting the work of up and coming young Cornish Artists. It was organised by the St Ives School of Painting and hosted in the prestigious Penwith Gallery culminating in the prize giving on 5th April 2019.

The exhibition involved numerous artworks that people had submitted to the competition that had been shortlisted. THese were in a whole variety of different art forms.

As I have entered several competitions before and my artworks have been shortlisted,  I have seen something similar to this before.

I found that the exhibition had been curated very well and the pictures that were submitted but weren’t shortlisted were put on a slideshow.  I really enjoyed the Prize Giving evening and I also won the prize for ‘Best in Show’ in the age category 13-15 years.

I don’t think that there was anything bad about the exhibition, or prizegiving.

I would recommend entering the competition because it was nice to have my artwork up in a gallery for everyone to see, and it was a nice experience because I got to see lots of other artworks by other young people that were very good.

Again, what I learnt from attending and participating,  I learnt that there is a lot of competition out there, and the artworks were of a very high standard. I had adopted a similar approach to the previous work I submitted to Young Art Cornwall, where I spent a long time working on my drawing so that I could perfect it. For my next competition, I need to try something that will stand out, so that is why I am going to start focusing on producing larger oil paintings.
