Towry Award

Congratulations to Mackie for winning the £10,000 Towry Award for Best Work in 2014 with his two surrealist oil paintings of caravans. This one is Autumn Rhythm, which shows a copy of a Jackson Pollock daub inside. The notice in the window incongruously advertises "Fresh Fish here". The Towry Award is one of at least 28 prizes awarded in a variety of categories in the 18th National Open Art Competition, the richest in the UK with a total of £60,000 awarded this year (CLICK). The exhibition of winning works runs at the The Embankment Gallery, Somerset House. London, until 25 October, admission free (CLICK). All works are for sale.
