Enter the Diana Armfield Prize for Drawing from Observation

Community news on behalf of Arts Richmond | 10 January 2022

In collaboration with Arts Richmond, distinguished and highly respected artist Diana Armfield is sponsoring a competition to encourage artists aged 16 years and over to draw from observation.

The competition is being run in memory of Diana's husband, Bernard Dunstan, another eminent artist, who sadly died recently at the age of 97. Both Diana and Bernard were well-known Royal Academicians for many years and were members of prestigious art societies.

Arts Richmond is offering a prize of £250 to the winner, who will also be allowed to keep one of her beautiful framed drawings for a year.

Diana wishes to encourage artists to draw directly from life, not from photographs or by using devices or other means.

The deadline for entries is 12.30pm on Saturday 26 February. Full details of the competition and entry requirements are available on the Arts Richmond website.
