SIR DENIS MAHON SCULPTURAL PROJECT GRANT AT
CITY & GUILDS OF LONDON ART SCHOOL

This grant has been created to honour the memory of Sir Denis Mahon and to continue his legacy and lifelong interests in fine art, carving and conservation. Indeed, Sir Denis spent many hours with the students of the Accademia di Belle Arti (Conservation) discussing their works, particularly the conservation of concrete and stone animals.

This £5,000 annual grant (for 3 years) has been created to support a student in their final year of study at City & Guilds of London Art School to realise a sculpture project, which will encourage the students to be ambitious in their work, regardless of financial circumstances. It is open to submissions annually from second year BA students of Conservation, Carving and Fine Art working with sculpture for use in their final year. They are invited to submit their applications (which should reflect Sir Denis’ studies, research and interests) to the Art School for the Grant and between one and three students will then be selected for recommendation to the Sir Denis Mahon Foundation for consideration.

The artists who have so far received the Grant are :

  2021-22 Morgan Edwards, Robert Heffernan, Imogen Long
  2020-21 Roisin Francis, Dan Russell, Johannes Wagenknecht
