Fine Art alumni success in Glyndebourne’s 2014 Art Competition


The Glyndebourne opera house has announced the winners of its 2014 Tour Art Competition, and securing third place is Alex Jabore, BA(Hons) Fine Art graduate.  Alex, who is passionate about opera, specialises in traditional oil painting and is currently London-based.  Alex’s work entitled ‘The Finale’ focuses on Violetta’s death and its tragic finality.

It was reported that the standard of submissions for the competition was incredibly high.  Artists from across the UK submitted outstanding pieces inspired by Verdi’s La traviata, one of three Glyndebourne operas that will tour the country from October to December.

Glyndebourne will launch its 2014 Tour on 04 October and the winning artists will see their work exhibited in the Stalls Gallery at Glyndebourne from 4-26 October 2014.
