The Golden Thread Gallery is pleased to announce that the recipient of the Golden Thread Gallery Mentoring & Exhibition Award 2023 is Charys Wilson.

The award is presented to an University of Ulster School of Art Graduate based on their MFA work and show. The winner of the award receives mentoring and professional support over 12 months from GTG Director Peter Richards and Deputy Director Sarah McAvera, building to a solo exhibition in the Golden Thread Gallery Project Space in late Spring 2023.

Wilson is a visual artist from the north coast of Northern Ireland who completed her BA Hons Fine Art from Aberystwyth University, Wales in 2015. Working most recently in installation, she looks to challenge our relationship and perception of the natural world.

Congratulations Charys, we look forward to working with you!
