"Textile Innovation in Jerwood Applied Arts Prize 2002"
2002-09-19 until 2002-11-03
Crafts Council Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

Eight artists working in the field of textiles have been shortlisted for the most prestigious prize in applied and decorative arts - the annual Jerwood Applied Arts Prize. Each year the prize showcases work from different disciplines in a five-year cycle, and the judges look for submissions that demonstrate development, innovation and excellence in each field within the last five years.

An exciting range of textiles will be represented in this year's exhibition, held at the Crafts Council Gallery between 19 September and 3 November 2002. None of the artists has been shortlisted for the Jerwood Prize before.

The shortlisted artists are: Maxine Bristow (hand and machine stitching); Rowena Dring (appliqué); Shelly Goldsmith (tapestry); Shizuko Kimura (hand embroidery); Lauren Moriarty (cutting and construction); Clio Padovani (tapestry, digital and video media); Freddie Robins (knitting); and Sarah Taylor (weaving).

The judging panel, which includes textile artist, Caroline Broadhead; interior designer, Nina Campbell; writer and independent curator, Pamela Johnson; deputy keeper of furniture, textiles and fashion at the V&A, Linda Parry; and artist Yinka Shonibare, spent an intense day selecting work from 85 applications to achieve the final shortlist of eight.

Chair of the panel, Pamela Johnson, commented: "The final group of artists we selected work across a broad range of techniques. They also demonstrate an enormous amount of skill and an intelligent take on traditional processes."

The winner of the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize 2002: Textiles will be announced at a special award ceremony on Monday, 30 September at the Crafts Council Gallery, and will receive £15,000.

Roanne Dods, Director of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation commented: "It is gratifying to see such dynamic work from textile artists who are making a substantial contribution to the applied arts. The Jerwood Charitable Foundation is committed to supporting innovation and excellence and once again, the award highlights the diversity present in textiles today."

Now in its 8th year, the Jerwood Applied Arts Prize runs on a five-yearly cycle starting with ceramics, textiles, glass, furniture and jewellery.
