This annual bursary was set up in memory of sculptor Adam Reynolds, to support a disabled artist working in the visual arts. Antony Gormley, RA one of Britain’s best known and internationally significant artists, is the patron of the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary.

The Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary 2013 will soon be open to applicants.
The Bursary offers a great opportunity to disabled mid-career visual artists,
providing time, space and support for artists to develop their creative practice
without the pressure of delivering a final work or particular outcome.

This year's winner will be awarded £5,000 and a three-month residency at
Spike Island, an international centre for the development of contemporary
art and design, Bristol in autumn 2013.

The Bursary was set up in memory of Adam Reynolds (1959-2005), a sculptor,
curator, teacher and a leading figure in the disability arts sector.
We're very pleased to have world-renowned sculptor Antony Gormley as patron
of the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary. Gormley said, "Adam was inspirational
as an artist and a man - seeing his disability as a strength. This Bursary is
the most practical and powerful way to continue doing what Adam did to make
the possible palpable."

After a number of successful residencies, including the Camden Arts Centre in
London, the BALTIC in Gateshead, and the Bluecoat Gallery in Liverpool we're
really excited to be returning to previous host venue Spike Island.

Keep an eye on our website for further information to be announced shortly.

2013 Bursary will take place for the second time at Spike Island Bristol.
