You will recall I posted the The Columbia Threadneedle Prize – Call for Entries back in July. This week those who entered the competition got to find out who has been selected for the exhibition from 3 to 20 February 2016 at the Mall Galleries in London.

There’s also going to be a second exhibition of many of the works at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence (the city’s largest temporary exhibition space), for a special four-week exhibition opening in June 2016.

I know some of the artists selected below – and I’ve been drawn by one of them!

If you’ve been selected and would like an image of your artwork featured in this blog post please get in contact (how to contact me details are in the side column)
