A Norfolk printmaker and animator has won a new arts award and a solo exhibition after impressing judges with her work.

A Norfolk artist has been awarded a bursary and prize package worth £4,000 and will host a solo exhibition in the city later this year.

The Assembly House Arts Prize for 2018, awarded by The Assembly House Trust, has been won by Keziah Philipps, a printmaker and animator who went to school in Norfolk, studied at Kingston University in London and has now returned to her home county.

The new award for emerging artists in Norwich and Norfolk includes a cash bursary, access to a Norwich studio space and an exhibition at The Assembly House.

For the inaugural year The Assembly House Trust are working in partnership with Norwich-based art studio Print to the People, who will be offering the winning candidate access to their high-quality printmaking facilities in central Norwich.
