The Bohun Gallery is thrilled to celebrate the achievement of Jennifer McRae, who has won the Lynn Painter- Stainers Prize. Jennifer received first prize over the 1,191 entries and 81 short listed artists who 'represent the highest level of entries in the prize's 14-year history'.

Jennifer McRae was awarded the prestigious first prize for her beautiful oil on linen portrait 'Past Present and Future: Tracing the female line', the work depicts three generations of the artist's family; her daughter, granddaughter, and herself. The judges described Jennifer's work: 'a beautifully rendered self-portrait showing the artist at work. It demonstrated great sensitivity and created a sense of intrigue about the figures'.

The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize was established in 2005 to encourage the very best creative representational painting and to promote the skill of draughtsmanship. It has come to be regarded as one of the most prestigious awards available in the UK.

The Mall Galleries is displaying Jennifer's painting alongside the work of the 81 finalists, the exhibition runs from the 5th to the 17th of March.
