New York Scholarship Winner

 Read Claire's blog HERE

The Saltire Society in conjunction with the Steven Campbell Trust announced the recipient of their first New York Scholarship at the Arts in Public Places Awards in Edinburgh.  Claire Paterson, a Graduate of Glasgow School of Art, was successful in being selected for the £13,000 bursary which will see her take up a residency with the prestigious International Studio and Curatorial Programme (ISPC) in Brooklyn.  As well as admiring Claire’s work (which can be seen here) the judges were impressed with her professionalism and her commitment to collaboration which was a key part of her proposal.

The judges stressed the extremely high quality of the entrants and the difficulty in coming to a decision.  Runners up: Rory Price, Mark Doyle, Robert Powell, Michael White all received a cash sum towards art materials as recognition of their work.


The collaboration with the Steven Campbell Trust, which was founded in memory of renowned Glasgow-born artist Steven Campbell, is part of the Saltire Society’s Enlighten programme, launched as part of the Society’s 80th anniversary celebrations.
