Congratulations to all the young artists aged 16 - 20 years who took part in this year's exhibition.
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.
