Five Local-Born Artists in UK's Largest Painting Prize  
This year the jurors: (L-R) Ged Quinn, Alison Watt, Gary Hume, Goshka Macuga and Sir Norman Rosenthal.
LIVERPOOL.- Four Liverpool-born artists and one Chester-born artist have been selected to exhibit in the UK’s biggest painting prize.

The John Moores Painting Prize is entered anonymously and open to all UK-based artists working with paint. This year the jurors, Sir Norman Rosenthal, Gary Hume, Goshka Macuga, Ged Quinn and Alison Watt have selected 45 paintings from almost 3,000 entrants.

Forming a key part of the Liverpool Biennial the exhibition opens at the Walker Art Gallery on 18 September 2010 to 3 January 2011.

The Liverpool and Chester-born artists demonstrate very different styles and approaches to painting.

This year National Museums Liverpool staff were able to enter for the first time. Jason Thompson of the organisation’s object dusting team, has worked for NML for over 12 years and is the first staff member to be included in the exhibition.

Jason said: “As far as I am concerned the John Moores Painting Prize is the show I have always wanted to be in. To be chosen for it really means a lot to me as I'm sure it would to any painter.

“When I was growing up, the Walker Art Gallery was the only place I knew where I could go and see what I might have called "real" art. And when the John Moores was on, it was the only time I got to see contemporary paintings in the flesh.

“To have one of my paintings in the gallery, as part of a John Moores show, is to be part of a tradition and is just fantastic!”
