Cafodd Arddangosfa Agored yr Haf MADE ei sedydlu i ddod a sylw a ffocws i artistiaid proffesiynol yng Nghymru, ac yng Nghaerdydd yn benodol, drwy greu enillydd sy’n cael eu dewis gan banel o artistiaid, curaduron a pherchnogion orielau celf. Mae’r wobr o sioe unigol yn oriel MADE i artist wedi ei ddewis/dewis gan artistiaid sydd eisioes wedi derbyn y wobr gan guraduron MADE, yn codi’r bar mewn sawl ffordd. Mae’n datgan bwriad penodol i ffocsu ar greu corff newydd o waith, o fewn fframwaith curadurol i’w datblygu drwy sgwrs , i’r perwyl o greu arddangosfa newydd o waith. Mae sylw ar hyrwyddo’r gwaith drwy’r wasg yn creu diddordeb ag ymgysylltiad â’r cyhoedd, ynghyd â elfen o ddenubuddsoddiad gan gyrff cyhoeddus a noddwyr celf. Mae’r wobr wedi llwyddo i helpu gyrfaoedd egin-artistiaid megis Zena Blackwell a Lucia Jones, yn ogystal â denu sylw a chreu diddordeb ymysg yr arena celf yng Nghymru a thu hwnt. Mae’n cydnabod bod dawn yn bodoli ac yn ffynu y tu allan i Lundain. Yn ogystal â Enillydd y Wobr Gelf, mi fyddwn ni hefyd yn gwobrwyo Enillydd y Bobl.

As the recipient of the MADE Summer Open Exhibition in 2017, the prize helped in accelerating my practice in unimaginable ways and acted as the perfect catalyst for my career.
The amount of work that Zoë Gingell and the MADE Team put into the exhibition between my
winning of the prize and the show being taken down on the last day was monumental. Immediately after being announced the winner in 2017, there was a strong sense of professionalism and of being nurtured, setting the tone for the next 13 months. A plan of action for the year ahead was mapped out and monthly mentoring sessions with Zoe were arranged. This structure and support implemented from the get-go filled me with the confidence and encouragement I needed, from guiding me through my Arts Council application to the design of publicity material.
Zoë's expertise and constant advice and support were invaluable during the year. She was 100% dedicated to the exhibition, selflessly devoting her time and going beyond the call of duty to ensure that I felt fully supported. This all enabled me to believe in myself and my ability to produce an exhibition of the highest standard. Zoë's amazing insight into the themes within my paintings was also invaluable. By her locating and identifying of these themes, I was able develop and investigate them further than I ever would have on my own. The monthly mentoring sessions either took place in my studio or at MADE and it also gave Zoë and I the opportunity to assess works and ensure that everything was on schedule. I can categorically say that the solo show at MADE has raised my profile enormously. The attention that the exhibition garnered not only in Wales, but on a national level, led to sales, further exhibition offers and more press and reviews even after it had closed. I am under no illusion that I would not have received this attention had I not had the solo exhibition at MADE; galleries like MADE are vital to the development of early career artists.
Winning the Summer Art Prize came at a critical point for me; as a young emerging artist it provided the rare opportunity to completely immerse myself in painting with the affirmation that my career choice was a very real and achievable dream. To be able to have a solo exhibition with the support of a Gallery and the Arts Council of Wales at this juncture in my life has been truly career defining. MADE reinforced my confidence in my work, nurtured my practice and has placed me in great stead to continue to pursue my career as an artist.
The curatorial support from Zoë Gingell over the past year has been invaluable as it pushed the conceptual and material boundaries within my practice, developing and consolidating it into new and exciting places. As a result, my solo exhibition at MADE, 'Tales from the Cutting Room Floor', has become a cornerstone in my practice by providing new avenues to explore and a deeper pool of possibilities in paint to dive into for years to come. The prize also boosted my profile as an artist by forming new, and building upon existing, professional relationships with galleries, curators and collectors. MADE and the Solo Art Prize have been instrumental in propelling my career and further establishing my practice in the UK and on the international arts scene.
The commitment by Zoë and the team to my exhibition throughout the pandemic was exceptional, overcoming all challenges posed to the sector throughout the year, and stands testament to the fervent dedication and passion of the team for supporting emerging artists.
