Stephen Jordan Enters Landscape Artist of The Year

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Danielle Karanicholas @ 2:10 am

Our very own Stephen Jordan took part in Landscape Artist of the year series 7 last August, which is currently being shown on Sky. The episode airs on Wednesday 17th February at 8pm on Sky Arts and Freeview Channel 11

Anyone who is familiar with the format of the program will know that a group of 8 artists, (although for this series they were reduced to 6 due to Covid) has 4 hours to produce a painting of the scene in front of them.  The landscape artist competition is less popular than the portrait artist one, and hasn’t been going quite as long, but he said ‘it was lovely to be invited to take part and I would encourage anybody interested in painting to enter the competition’

Stephens say’s ‘the recording of the episode in which I am in was made on the 11th of August last year which was really hot, I think one of the hottest days of the year. I am very grateful to Gert for covering admissions for me that day. The series is presented by Stephen Mangan and Joan Bakewell and the judges are Tai Shan Schierenberg, independent curator Kathleen Soriano and art historian Kate Bryan.  I have been a fan of the series for a number of years so it was fantastic for me to be in it.
