John Jones Prestigious Award
John Jones is a global centre of excellence in the preservation and presentation of fine art. The prestigious company has developed and sponsored The John Jones Art Prize at IAMS. A panel of experts chose eight winners from over 60 Islington Arts and Media School student entries, with the winners being invited to John Jones Gallery to take part in a series of workshops lead by professionals, photographing their artwork, printing the work onto large-scale canvases and stretching them onto frames.
The winning pieces are exhibited in our new IAMS gallery. On Wednesday 2nd April a team from John Jones visited the exhibition, talked to the winning students and presented them with their certificates in a really lovely celebration of this new partnership between IAMS and John Jones.
“We are excited to be working with Islington Arts and Media School to teach students about specialist career pathways in the Fine Arts & Exhibitions industry: professional photography, restoration, precious metal gilding, bespoke carpentry, joining and framing.” Katie Jones, John Jones Director
