canns down press award

Every year we are deighted to head to the Bankside Gallery in London which is tucked in next to the Tate Modern. We are there to choose a our favourite of a recently graduated or newly appointed artist to the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. It has been a wonderful opportunity to view highly skilled work in one exhibition.


This year was a little different – due to the lockdown we had to choose our winner via the private view online! Remotely between the 3 art department Canns Downers, we chose our winner, Rachel Gracey. Her printmaking work has a bright, loose flair and focuses on the landscape. Visit her website to find out more:
