The Salon Art Prize organised by Matt Roberts Arts provides emerging creative talent with a valuable platform to further their careers. The prize attracts thousands of entries each year and has gained international recognition as a valuable opportunity for contemporary artists. The 2012 shortlist exhibition is now underway, showcasing the work of 88 artists at the 1400 sq ft Matt Roberts Arts exhibition space. The shortlisted artists were chosen across photography, painting, sculpture and 2D disciplines by a prestigious selection panel:
