The Steven Campbell Hunt Medal 2018.

The Steven Campbell Trust are delighted to announce that the 2018 recipient of the Hunt Medal for poetic creativity, is artist Nancy Dewhurst, Sculpture & Environmental Art Department, GSA, for her beautiful and evocative work ‘ Clepsydra’.

Nancy’s current artistic practice is focussed towards ‘time’ and different notions of this – geological time, ancient time, time dictated by labour, and punctuated by play. More broadly, her work is about systems (of which ‘time’ is one).

Trust directors had a wonderful afternoon at GSA, Trongate, looking at all Fine Art graduates’ work and having many illuminating and enriching conversations, which gave us much to consider. We were grateful for the invaluable assistance of Claire Paterson, GSA graduate and recent Steven Campbell Trust and Saltire Society New York Scholarship recipient, and our first Hunt Medal award winner in 2008. Many thanks also to Claire’s partner Brian McCluskey, writer and painter, who offered valuable insight and support.

We would also like to thank staff from GSA, particularly Fiona Robertson and John Quinn for their assistance and support and look forward to continuing our ongoing relationship.

Finally we would like to extend our warm congratulations to Nancy and wish her a successful and enriching career.
