What artists say about PURE

"Winning the PURE Drawing Prize in 2013 was a huge endorsement of the path I had chosen to follow.
Subsequent mentoring by Lesley Samms and networking with other Pure Artists has given me the confidence to develop my practice and successfully approach the London market with the knowledge of their continuing support in the background."
Louisa Crispin AUA

The Bridging the Void 2015 Tour has finished and was an unbelievable success,
with 4 out of the 7 venues selling out. Thank you for your help.
You have been a wonderful support and I would be grateful to continue the partnership.
Rachel Johnson | Choreographer & Film Artist

Entering the Pure Arts Group Open Submission in 2013 has proved to be a pivotal time for me and for my career as a painter. Most importantly, exhibiting with Pure Arts and winning an award was a real boost to my self-confidence as an artist.
Following on from that, I had the chance to exhibit in Group Shows which then led to commissions and further sales.
The Pure Arts team have consistently been supportive, giving me very useful and practical feedback on my work and helped me to develop my website. Another real benefit has been the chance to get to know other Pure Arts members and gain what feels more like friendships than professional relationships!
Helen Acklam | Painter
