Founded in 1949 as the ‘Young Contemporaries’, the Arts Council sponsored exhibition helps to launch promising artists. The annual selection is made by artists and writers who are often previous winners themselves.
Stacey said, ‘I am delighted to have been shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries. Since graduating it’s been a whirlwind of activity and it feels great to be representing Cornwall and being part of showcasing the great wealth of creativity and talent we have down here.’
Stacey, who lives in West Cornwall, is also involved in a current exhibition with Millennium Gallery, St. Ives, and Spectrum, the autism charity. The exhibition, ‘I’ (Passing Through the Veil of Solitude) runs until 20 April at Telegraph House in Truro.
