Tricycle Miriam Hyman Award for Best Young Artist 2012
Tricycle Miriam Hyman Best Young Artist 2012 Winner: Rhea Legister Fletcher
Report by Natalie Ryde, Artist in Residence
The Tricycle Young Artists Group held their annual exhibition in the gallery from 15th-19th May 2012. There was a strong focus on drawing skills this year and the artists received many compliments from visitors to the exhibition. The Young Artists meet on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons for art classes with me, the Tricycle's Artist in Residence.
Each year an artist is awarded the Miriam Hyman Award for best Young Artist. This year's winner was Rhea Legister Fletcher (below, top left) and a runner-up prize was given to Rianne Campbell (below, bottom left).
We celebrated with a party in the The Tricycle Gallery on Wednesday 16th May. The younger group all aged 9-11 decorated ginger-bread men for the guests. David Cohen, a supporter of the Young Artists group thanked the Tricycle for "the lovely eats and drinks which took me back to my childhood, so altogether there were lots of pleasurable experiences that evening."
Congratulations to Rhea, who received a voucher for art materials, and to Rianne, from everyone at the MHMT!
