The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2012 is a competition designed to encourage creative representational painting and promote the skill of draughtsmanship. 
An exhibition of 98 selected works is on display at the Mall Galleries, London until 5 April.  The exhibition will then tour to W.H. Patterson Gallery, London W1 from 23 - 27 April 2012.

I'm planning to go and see it on Friday (which is my Drawing Group day) and will post a review either Friday or Saturday.  [Update:  See also Review: Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2012 Exhibition]

Other prizes were as follows
As I indicated in my earlier post, in 2012, the selectors seem to have rather more artists than I recall having in the past. They are:
  • Andrew Wilton, Visiting Research Fellow at Tate Britain (past selector)
  • Ken Howard RA NEAC, Artist - winner of numerous prizes and a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Painter Stainers
  • Chris Orr RA, Artist - used to be Professor and Head of Department of the Printmaking Department at the Royal College of Art London
  • James Hart Dyke, Artist - paints MI6 and the Himalayas
  • William Packer, Art critic and artist

What an enjoyable and inspiring exhibition! And what a contrast with the Threadneedle which seems to have lost the plot this year, thanks Katherine for all your great reports and links!

I think you might mean last year Jen - we haven't had this year's Threadneedle prize yet! :)

Hello. You appear to have linked to the wrong Christopher Green in this post.

Katherine Tyrrell said...

Thanks for the comment - and I'd be interested to know why you think this and whether you know which is the right website.

This is the correct link http://www.christophergreen.info/page5.htm See his biography section where the prize is mentioned.
