Our 7th commended entry for the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize 2019 is by Gary Scholes. During the competition’s entry period, we will be commending one entry each week that we think is of exceptional quality. All commended entries are automatically added to the longlist, meaning they will be considered for the six Category Prizes, the People’s Choice Award, the Shortlist, the Emerging Artist Prize and the Overall Prize. To submit your work, please go to the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize website.
