Since her death in April 2014, there has been a wish to honour France’s art and belief in life and its need to be lived and celebrated – which, in many ways, is what her art is all about. France especially valued the aspirations of those younger than her. As she once said “When I am well I run with the young!”
Friends of France, in conjunction with Oxford Printmakers Co-operative and Escape Community Arts, are now proud to announce the launch of the donation-seeking stage of The France Brodeur Young Artist Award. The Award aims to support a young artist(s) by way of a bursary, apprenticeship, internship, bringing a project to fruition, membership fees or other means of support.
Donations can be made in cash or cheque at the exhibition –‘Restrospective – ‘A Lasting Passion’ – to be held at Oxford Printmakers Co-operative from Monday 2 March to Saturday 18 April 2015. Full details on the Events page. Additionally, all sales of France’s prints from this exhibition will go towards the award (OPC have very generously waived their commission).
Launch of the Exhibition on 1st March 2015 and the launch of the France Brodeur Young Artist Award.
An illustrated monograph, ‘A Lasting Passion’, written by France about her art and techniques. A 100 + pages £16 – again all proceeds will go towards the award.
If you would like to order a copy please let me know.
