Jerwood Open Prize

By a strange coincidence, only yesterday I wondered what had happened to that costly white elephant Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA). Today the answer arrived: four crafts persons have been awarded an equal share in the first Jerwood Makers Open Prize of £30,000. One is a jeweller, one a glass maker, one a ceramic artist and one an installation thingy person (title link). They were selected from 200 entries. I guess the pointed but pointless glass objects are by joint winner Heike Brachlow. The Jerwood Makers Open exhibition will be at JVA at Jerwood Space, London, from 13 July to 28 August (CLICK). Although its very nice of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation to spread its largess around the UK, I wish it would do something useful with its money, such as a prize for the creation of a Brit. online browser game. Germany dominates this field, worth millions.
