John Moores Painting Prize 2014
5 July - 30 November 2014
Once again the Walker Art Gallery brings a fascinating array of approaches to one of art’s most traditional mediums when the John Moores Painting Prize opens as part of the Liverpool Biennial .
The mix of paintings is eclectic, with landscapes, portraits, abstract and sculptural works united only by their manipulation of paint. UK-based artists who work with paint were able to submit work to be considered for the prize. 50 artists have been selected from more than 2,500 entrants.
We are also honoured to display the dynamic prizewinners from the 2014 John Moores Painting Prize China, which was held for the third time in Shanghai earlier this year.
The winner of this year's John Moores Painting Prize and the recipient of £25,000, is Rose Wylie with her painting 'PV Windows and Floorboards'.
A 'Visitors' Choice' award will be presented towards the end of the exhibition. Visitors can vote for their favourite painting when they visit the gallery. The winner will receive a prize of £2014.
The John Moores Painting Prize is delivered in partnership with the John Moores Liverpool Exhibition Trust.
John Moores Painting Prize 2014 is part of National Museums Liverpool's Modern Masters exhibition series part funded by the European Union - the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
