Winners of the 2022-23 Cass Art x Phoenix Art Space Award
We are delighted to announce that Lydia Stonehouse and Megan Hack have won the annual Cass Art x Phoenix Art Space Studio Award. They are students from the University of Brighton’s BA (Hons) Fine Art Painting.
This award is designed to help graduates kick-start their artistic career with a free studio space in the heart of Brighton.
“Phoenix Art Space prides itself on being a space where artists can flourish throughout the different carer stages of their practice, and we are delighted to welcome two new graduating students as recipients of this year’s studio award. The partnership with Cass Art and the University of Brighton is one we highly value and represents an opportunity for the artists to immerse themselves in the professional, practical and social side of their career development. Our awardees always bring a dynamism and energy to the building, and we very much look forward to meeting Lydia and Megan later this year.” – Lucy Day, Interim Executive Director, Phoenix Art Space
