One week to go until international portrait exhibition opens in Lincoln!

Lincoln’s Usher Gallery will host an internationally recognised portrait exhibition, direct from London, this September.

Selected from 2,557 entries by artists from 80 countries, the BP Portrait Award 2016 represents the very best in contemporary portrait painting.

Ashley Gallant , Collections Access Officer of The Usher Gallery says :
“There’s so much variety within this exhibition. The models and styles vary greatly; from the incredibly moving, to the sublimely beautiful to the gently humorous. I’m delighted that we’re hosting this national highlight of the art calendar. Lincoln is the first city outside of London where you can see the exhibition.”

Teri Anne Scoble BP Portrait Award Lincoln

Teri Anne Scoble’s work will be featured in the BP Portrait Award exhibition

Now in its thirty-seventh year, and twenty-seventh year of sponsorship by BP, the award has become world renowned and is the most prestigious international portrait painting competition launching the careers of many artists.

Artist Teri Anne Scoble lived in Washingborough in the 1970s and 80s. Her work was first exhibited as part of the BP Portrait Award in 2013.

Teri says:
“Being an exhibitor in the BP Portrait Award has changed my life. It has proved to be the launchpad to my artistic career and brought in commissions.

“For me to be returning to Lincoln after so many years with my painting ‘The 271 to Arsenal’ means a huge amount to me, and I am so excited to see it on show in the Usher Gallery.”
