S1 Introduces presents new work by the 2016/17 S1 Bursary Holders. The four recent BA Fine Art graduates from Sheffield Hallam University, Alice Eaton, India Garry, Tom Griffiths and Liam Richards were selected to take part in this year’s bursary programme based on the strength and diversity of their individual practices. Established in 2009, the S1 Bursary Programme supports fine art graduates from Sheffield Hallam University during a critical time of any artist’s career – the first year of professional practice following graduation. The programme provides a valuable opportunity for recent graduates to benefit from working within a professional artist studio complex through the provision of subsidised studio space, mentoring from S1’s alumni, and the opportunity to present new work in the concluding exhibition S1 Introduces.
The Bursary Holders’ show will take place at the Old Post Office, Sheffield Hallam University. S1 Introduces will open on 28th July and run until 3rd September 2017. More information about the different artists and their practice is to follow.
