Dr Supanee Gazeley Art Prize recognises the best work by a final-year student
Chloe Culley has been named as the winner of the 2023 Dr Supanee Gazeley Art Prize, continuing a remarkable summer of success for the final-year student.
The £3,000 prize is awarded to the best degree show by a third-year student on the BA (Hons) Fine Art course at Anglia Ruskin University’s Cambridge School of Art.
Chloe won the Dr Supanee Gazeley Art Prize for her series of five large-scale untitled oil paintings, on canvas, which went on public display as part of the 2023 Graduate Showcase, the annual end of course degree show.
Earlier this year, Chloe was named as one of the winners of the national Freelands Painting Prize 2023, which will see her work go on show at the North London gallery this autumn. And last month, Chloe graduated with a First Class honours degree from ARU during a ceremony at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.
Chloe, who is originally from Tunbridge Wells in Kent, said:

You can see more of Chloe’s work at www.chloeculley.uk or on Instagram @chloejess.art. Her work can also be viewed on Present, the online showcase for graduate artwork from across ARU.
The Supanee Gazeley Fine Art Prize is supported by Supanee Gazeley, an alumna of ARU having graduated in 1962. She has held numerous art exhibitions in the UK, Thailand and Hong Kong, and became an Honorary Doctor of ARU in 2007.
The prize recognises the value of the arts and the importance of nurturing new talent, and supports and encourages Fine Art students in further developing their work. Supanee Gazeley has very generously funded the Prize for a period of 50 years, from 2010 to 2060.
