The Anna Airy Award Exhibition
Saturday 16 November 2019

If you are in the Ipswich area between Saturday 16 November and Thursday 28 November, do pop in to this annual exhibition featuring exciting new art works by young people aged 16 - 20 years.

The exhibition will be held at the University of Suffolk in Ipswich in November.  The Arts Society South East Suffolk has been involved with the organising and funding of this annual event which showcases the outstanding art being produced in local schools which would otherwise never be seen by the public and recognises the students’ achievements.  The work will be displayed at:-

The Foyer, Waterfront Building, Ipswich IP4 1QJ


Anna Airy

The Award Fund was set up in 1965 in memory of Anna Airy (1882 - 1964). She was one of the most distinguished painters of her generation with work represented in many major national collections. During the First World War she was appointed an official war artist. For 19 years she was President of Ipswich Art Club (as the Ipswich Art Society was then called).

Anna Airy was also regarded as a brilliant and inspirational teacher by her students at Ipswich Art School and in the Art Club's Annual Exhibition she always included a student section to give young artists a chance to exhibit their work in the public setting of a gallery.

The Society has continued the tradition by arranging independent exhibitions of students' work in association with schools, Suffolk New College and the University of Suffolk.
