Here is the information which was in the Young Artists 2007 Tricycle Young Artists Group Catalogue:

The Tricycle Young Artists Group is made up of gifted and talented young artists who are aged between 14 and 18 years old. The weekly class is run by the Tricycle Artist in Residence, Kevina Khan, who provides support and tuition to young people who have a particular interest and aptitude for art, many of whom have been nominated to attend by their local school.

Young Artists 2007 provides an opportunity for the Tricycle Young Artists Group to exhibit their work in a professional gallery. Drawing inspiration from the Tricycle Gallery’s ongoing exhibition programme, each individual is helped towards creating work of a high standard. Students concentrate their creative talents on experimenting with different techniques and motivating themselves to explore themes of personal interest, collected from contemporary art, current affairs and art history.

For the second year the Tricycle Gallery will select a young artist of particular promise to be awarded the Miriam Hyman Memorial Prize. This award has been set up in the memory of Miriam who was killed in the London bombings of 7th July 2005 at the age of thirty-two. Miriam was a creative young woman at the start of her career, who generously shared her artistic talent with all who knew her. Her parents, John and Mavis Hyman have kindly donated many of Miriam’s art materials and art books to the Tricycle’s Young Artists. The winner will be announced at the Private View on Tuesday 8th May 2007.
