The Bennett Prize was endowed with a $3 million fund established at The Pittsburgh Foundation in 2016. It is the largest art award ever offered solely to women painters. Seeking to propel the careers of women figurative realist painters, the winner of The Bennett Prize will receive $25,000 annually for two years to allow her to devote the time necessary to mount a solo exhibition of figurative realist paintings, which will open at the Muskegon Museum of Art and then travel the country.
The Winner of the Bennett Prize will be announced May 3rd, 2019 in conjunction with an exhibition of the finalists works at the Muskegon Museum of Art taking place May 2 through September 9, 2019.
Plus Gallery congratulates Jenny Morgan and the other nine finalists for The Bennett Prize.
