Queen's grad finalist for British art award
A Queen’s University graduate is in the running for one of Britain’s most prestigious art awards.
Ciara Phillips (Artsci’00) is one of four artists who made the shortlist for the Turner Prize earlier this year.
Currently living in Glasgow, Scotland, Ms. Phillips received a Bachelor of Fine Art at Queen’s before earning a Master of Fine Art in 2004 at the Glasgow School of Art.
Ms. Phillips, the first Canadian-born finalist in the award’s 30-year history, is nominated for her exhibition Workshop at The Showroom in London, where she turned the gallery into a print workshop, bringing in other artists designers and even local women’s groups to make prints with her.
