We are delighted that law firm, Wedlake Bell, will again sponsor the Chelsea Art Society this year to help us put on our 74th Summer Open Exhibition. In June 2022, they awarded their prestigious prize and a cheque for £1000 to one of the exhibiting non-member artists at Chelsea Old Town Hall.
We have many non-members exhibiting with us at COTH every year and the painters among them are eligible for the Wedlake Bell Award. Previous winners include Susanna MacInnes and Luke Martineau. Last year, Wyatt Blackwell won the £1000 prize. He had recently moved from America to London and submitted a winning work which caught the eye of our sponsors who purchased it and awarded him a £1000 cheque.
This year, the Wedlake Bell Young Artist under 35 Award for a Painter or a Sculptor is for £1,500.
