Adèle Love who is one of Grierson Galleries’ Artists exhibited with Grierson Galleries at The Hive in Cranbrook, Kent earlier this year, has recently won the SAA Artist of the Year Professional Abstract category for her painting ‘Promise’ that she created during lockdown! Adèle’s work – which was hugely successful in the Grierson Galleries’ Escape from Reality exhibition at the beginning of 2020 – is truly inspirational.
Adèle says, ‘I joined SAA in January 2020 and during lockdown decided to put my work on their site as a member and enter a couple of their competitions. I went in for their front cover magazine competition for their bi-monthly member magazine that reaches over 45,000 artists and applied for Artist of the Year.
‘Well I was successful in both! I will have my work featured in November with a three-page interview with images of my work and I also won Artist of the Year Professional Abstract category in the competition! Apparently there were 4900 entries across various categories!’
