Steven Campbell New York Scholarship

The Saltire Society in conjunction with the Steven Campbell Trust have recently announced the recipient of the 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 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. Artist’s selected for final interviews were: Rory Price, Mark Doyle, Robert Powell and 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.

The Steven Campbell Trust wishes to thank The Saltire Society for their partnership and valued support in this joint venture. We would also like to wish Claire Paterson great success for her forthcoming residency and look forward to following and supporting this exciting initiative in the coming months. Finally, we would like convey our sincere thanks to the high quality of all artist’s interviewed, which made our task in choosing the successful candidate a very difficult one.

We are delighted to highlight selected works from all artist’s concerned below:
