Janet Kenyon Shortlisted for Sunday Times Award

21 July 2017 by: Liam Whitehead

Janet Kenyon, who has exhibited at Buy Art Fair every year for the last six years, has had her piece, Northern Edge, (Manchester), shortlisted for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2017. The painting is a view from the 23rd floor of the Beetham Tower looking out across the Manchester cityscape.

Janet won the Smith & Williamson Cityscape Prize through the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition in both 2009 and 2016.

As part of the competition, Janet took part in a Q&A with The Times where she discussed the piece which won the Smith & Williamson Cityscape Prize in 2016, her ability to capture both natural and artificial light, and how her career has been impacted by winning a number of high-profile competitions. The full interview can be found here.

We're delighted to have Janet exhibiting with us again for a sixth year. You can view and buy work direct from her stand and meet Janet in person at Buy Art Fair 2017, 27-29 October at Manchester Central.
