Dubery and Brogden EAAF Scholarship 2017/18
The Dubery & Brogden EAAF Scholarship is now in its second year. Elizabeth Kimbley, MA Textile Design and Kate Walker, MA Fine Art have been awarded the Postgraduate Scholarship for 2017/18 and will each receive £2,500 across their 2 years of part-time study at NUA.
Director of the East Anglia Art Fund Amanda Geitner judged the scholarship and noted: ‘Lizzie communicated a keen engagement with the skills of her craft, and we were captivated by her passion for sustainability, upcycling and longevity. Kate is clearly eager to examine the intellectual framework of her painting but also to hone her technical abilities and understanding of the potential and quality of her medium. It feels fitting that the Dubery Scholarship goes to an artist so keenly engaged with the materiality of paint and a love of landscape.”
Leila Danesh, BA (Hons) Fashion and Madeline Exton, BA (Hons) Fine Art were the winners of this year’s Dubery & Brogden Undergraduate Scholarship, and will receive £2,500 for each of their three years of study at NUA. The judges were impressed by the commitment and sheer determination communicated by both students, noting “Leila is already on a path and has clearly got the most out of her Foundation year. Maddie charmed us from the start and the individuality of her approach reads as if she is very much an artist already.”
