FBYAA – 2016 Winners

The France Brodeur Young Artists Award (FBYAA) had a successful first year in 2016 with applications from young artists over the summer and two eventual winners in Pamela Schilderman and Molly Lemon.

Both winners brought exactly the kind of passion in and technical curiosity to their work, that FBYAA is looking for.

After such a promising start, FBYAA will be offering a further round of awards in 2017. Watch out for news on this in February/March.

Pamela Schilderman “The France Brodeur Young Artist Award has enabled me to create ‘Casket’; a project that is pivotal to my next body of work on identity.”
Pamela Schilderman
Molly Lemon “The France Brodeur Young Artist Award has allowed me to experiment with the pressure printing technique by funding my purchase of new materials. Now with larger rollers and specialist papers I am able me to produce bigger prints with more detail. But most importantly this award has given me the courage to whole-heartedly invest in a full time career in art, something that I had not had the confidence to do prior to the award. Receiving the FBYAA has been an invaluable achievement and I am so thankful for the opportunity it has given me.”
Molly Lemon

Announcement of the launch of The France Brodeur Young Artist Award (FBYAA)

The FBYAA seeks to offer financial support to a young artist(s) – aged between 18 and 35 years old – in relation to their art and artistic career. Ideally the grants awarded will be towards costs involved in a proposed project, which should include developing new work.

Practitioners who can demonstrate a commitment to their work, technical rigour, and development within their practice, would be ideal candidates.

France Brodeur was a printmaker with international exhibitions to her name and a wide range of interests in the arts, particularly the visual arts, theatre and dance. Originally from Quebec, Canada, France lived in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England, for 20 years and died there in April 2014. The FBYAA seeks to honour both her art and her belief in life and its need to be lived and celebrated – which, in many ways, is what her art is all about. France especially valued the aspirations of those younger than her.

Awards of between £500 and £3,000 will be available.

This first year’s FBYAA will open for applications on Friday 13 May 2016 and close at 12 noon on Friday 9 September 2016.

It is intended that award(s) will be announced in October 2016.
