Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2016
Lewis Hazelwood-Horner has been announced as winner of the 2016 Columbia Threadneedle Prize, Europe’s leading open competition for figurative and representational art. Lewis receives a cash prize of £20,000 and a solo exhibition for a wider body of his work at Mall Galleries later this year.
Lewis McNaught, Chair of the Selection Panel and Director of Mall Galleries said, “Visitors will be delighted by the strength and breadth of this year’s selection. The winning painting stood out for the scale of its ambition, while there are other works in the exhibition that push the boundaries of figurative and representational art into new territory. Support for this Prize from artists in the UK and across Europe just gets bigger as submissions get more ambitious.”
