UAL ED Fine Art students, Penny Tetlow and Jayne Donohoe Place Top Tier in an International Competition
Congratulations to UAL Extended Diploma Fine art students, Penny Tetlow and Jayne Donohoe who have placed in the top tier in an international competition!
Jayne’s submission (above) is featured in the top 10 of the Wild Spaces category in the SFS Introducing art competition. With over 100 submissions received from as far as Australia, Korea and Iran, Jayne’s beautiful art work has been selected to join the Invitational Collection on display at gallery@oxo in London in November, and will be sold in the online auction that follows.
The selection was led by multi-award-winning Landscape artist Sevina Yates, assisted by the Explorers Against Extinction Trustees Robert Ferguson and Sara White.
Former student of Ian Ramsey CofE Academy in Stockton-on-Tees Penny Tetlow’s submission (featured above) was featured in the top 100 of the well-established 2020 SFS Introducing Wildlife category. 600 entries came from all over the world – China, South Korea, Russia, Iran, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the US, Brazil, Iceland, Dubai, Qatar, Tanzania and most countries in Europe.
The Selection Panel was led by Gary Hodges, the UK’s best selling and most collectable wildlife pencil artist, and Alison Nicholls, a leading African Wildlife Artist based in the US, specialising in sketching and watercolour. They were assisted by Robert Ferguson, Sara White and Charles Jukes, the trustees of Explorers Against Extinction. It took several days of deliberation to narrow the submissions to just over 200, the final cut to 100 taking many more hours and much debate.
100 pieces including Penny’s stunning artwork are selected to join our Invitational Collection on display at gallery@oxo in London this November and will be sold in our online auction which follows.
