Come & vote for your favourite Surrey artist and support the local talent with us.

The Surrey Artist of the Year competition is a partnership between the New Ashgate and the Surrey Artists Open Studios to celebrate the wealth of creative talent in Surrey. Starting in 2009; this aspirational exhibition offers a collective of local quality arts and craft as voted for by the public during open studio visits. The top scoring artists come together for a programme of events. There is a wide variety of artworks on show, including different materials and techniques such as painting, drawing, textiles, ceramics and paper art.

The shortlisted artists are: Caroline Bond, Barbara Bradshaw, Sinéad Fox, Georgie Gardiner, Annabel Hocking, Christine Hopkins, Diana King, Joanna Lloyd, Julie Matthews, Faye Mayo, Peg Morris, Lucy Dorothy Nichols, Julie Patton, Sue Ransley, Sarah Rawlins, Sue Roche, Alison Saunders and Sonya Vine.

Again, during the exhibition, until 27th October, 12noon, members of the public are encouraged to vote for an artist; and the artist with the most votes from public and judging panel, is named Surrey Artist of the Year 2023.

The winner receives a bursary of £1,000, a solo show at the New Ashgate Gallery and a complementary Winner’s Stand at the Surrey Art Fair as well as a £100 Loxley voucher. The runner ups receive £25 Loxley vouchers.

The season includes free family workshops during the October half term.

The competition is organised by New Ashgate Gallery in partnership with the Surrey Artists Open Studios. It is supported by the Surrey Art Fair and Loxley Arts.

With such an eclectic and talented mix of local artists, the Guildford, Farnham, Woking & Surrey Downs Magazines are the official media sponsor of Surrey Artist of the Year.
