Congratulations to two of our alumnae, Alicia Ponzio and Valentina Zlatarova, who have been selected by the prestigious ‘Society for Portrait Sculptors’, in London, to participate in their annual juried competition, called ‘FACES 2011’.
The Open Exhibition is the only forum for contemporary portrait sculpture and consists of about 70 sculptures of which approximately one third are chosen from open submission from non-members. It is held each year in May at The Gallery in Cork Street, London.
Valentina Zlatarova received the Tiranti prize for the second time. The Tiranti Prize is awarded to the best work from a young portrait sculptor of 30 years old or under. Here is the sculpture that were selected. Valentina previously won the prize in 2008.
