‘Outstanding’ University sculptor wins Storrar Cowdry Fine Art Prize

8 June, 2018

An outstanding student sculptor has been presented with the Storrar Cowdry Art prize at a University of Chester ceremony.

Storrar Cowdry presented ‘The Storrar Cowdry Prize for Fine Art’ to sculptor Aveline Kyffin at this year’s Valedictory Ceremony. The prize included a year’s membership to the Tate Galleries across the UK.

Aveline, who with her husband ran an illustration and design studio in South Africa before moving to Llandudno in North Wales, now facilitates art workshops for people in the community and other groups in North Wales.

Aveline’s final degree piece was a sculpture made in multimedia, such as cotton, copper other metals and wood. Aveline said: “I am so grateful to Storrar Cowdry for the prize, which gives me recognition for all my hard work.”

Aveline went on to say her fellow students had been very supportive and encouraging, along with the staff, who Aveline said were “incredible,” and which helped enormously with her success.

Maggie Jackson, Fine Art Lecturer at the University, said: “Aveline brought a special feel to this year’s fine art Students.

Maggie added: “Aveline is an outstanding student who works tirelessly to produce interesting experimental contemporary work. She is always committed and dedicated to whatever she is undertaking.”
