Help the Gallery to 'win' an artist

The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery is in with a chance of winning an artist for an evening in May but needs your votes to try to make it happen.

A Mr Smith's Letterpress workshop


The Connect10 competition to win an artist is part of the 2014 ‘Museums at Night’ festival, when museums, galleries, libraries and heritage sites open their doors for special evening events.   Ten artists will be taking part, including Grayson Perry, Amy Sharrocks, and Rankin.  

Leeds’ Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery has made it to the shortlist of venues vying for a unique, interactive evening with the designer and typographer Kelvyn Smith of Mr Smith’s Letterpress.  It is competing with:

•    William Morris Gallery, London
•    Denbighshire Archives and Ruthin Gaol Museum, Ruthin
•    Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising, London

An online public vote will determine which venue gets the artist – and a winner’s bursary of £2,000.

Voting will remain open from 11am on Tuesday 14 January to 5pm on Tuesday 28 January.  

Vote for the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery.
