2021 marks twenty years since the establishment of the Golden Fleece Award through the bequest of its founder – the artist, educator and researcher Lillias Mitchell (1915-2000).
In honour of this significant milestone, the Golden Fleece Trust have awarded 6 winners this year: Aideen Barry (multimedia / sculpture / installation), Bassam Al-Sabah (multimedia / CGI filmmaking), Laura Fitzgerald (painting / installation / video), Lorna Donlon (tapestry weaving / collage / installation), Maria McKinney (sculpture / multimedia), and Sinead O’Dwyer (fashion design / textiles).
The Golden Fleece Award supports both fine and applied arts and we congratulate all the winners as well as the Trust on making these additional awards at such an important time for artists.
