A FINE art student from the University of Chichester is celebrating after winning a £1,000 cash prize.
Alison Stewart, 47, impressed judges in Manchester earlier this month with her British Isles-inspired prints, and scooped the 2012 Textile Society’s Undergraduate Student Bursary 2012.
The third year undergraduate said: ‘The main benefit of this award is having the backing and profile which I will be given by The Textile Society.
‘The society has a magazine called Text, in which I am expected to write an article to accompany the images of my work. I also have an opportunity to give a presentation to the society.’
In addition to Alison’s success, second year student Sam Lloyd, 34, has just finished exhibiting his sculpture of an egg timer made from recycled plastic at Oxmarket Centre of Arts in Chichester.
Last year Sam won Better Tomorrows’ Sculpture Competition at the Cass Foundation near Chichester for this work, called Kronos.
