Mike Ingram, Chairman of the JNF presents a cheque for £500 to Alice Dudley supported by Foundation members.
The John Nicholson Foundation is an Isle of Man charity which was founded following the death of John Hobson Nicholson in 1988 and is supported by the Rotary Club of Rushen & Western Mann. John was the only British artist of the 20th century to have designed coins, stamps and banknotes. His outstanding talent was recognised worldwide and he was awarded membership of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours.
The object of the Foundation as specified by John is to "advance visual arts in the Isle of Man by way of grants, awards bursaries or prizes". Since its formation, the Foundation has supported many local artists and recently it has been able to make an annual bursary award of £500 to the 2018/2019 Bursary winner Alice Dudley. Alice recently completed her Art & Design Foundation at UCM and will soon be starting a degree in Fine Art at Falmouth University. The Foundation was impressed by her digital portfolio and the wide range of media in which she works.
