Beautiful British landscapes take centre stage at an art exhibition in Mayfair this month.

 

 

Works by the finalists and winners of the Landscape Artist of the Year event will be on display at Clarendon Fine Art’s Mayfair gallery.

Amateur and professional artists compete for the prize of a £10,000 commission. They then create a landscape artwork of Venice for the Royal Institute of British Architects.

See their stunning portrayals of British landscapes at the Dover Street gallery until January 22nd.

Candidates were whittled down to a final shortlist of three who were asked to depict Battersea Power Station.

The works of art featured in a TV series on the Sky Arts channel last autumn.

See the final work by winner Fujiko Rose below.

Dame Joan Bakewell (pictured above) says: “It’s always fascinating to watch the artists grow and evolve their style throughout the programme and witness the incredible creativity in their interpretations of beautiful British landscapes.”

The judges are artist Tai Shan Schierenberg, art historian Kate Bryan and independent curator Kathleen Soriano.

Meanwhile, the 2020 Portrait Artist of the Year series is back on Sky Arts. It starts at 8pm on Tuesday January 21st.
