John Jones

Art is important to everyone at John Jones. We are constantly challenged and inspired by the art that we encounter and the professionals that we work with, and look to support diverse creative projects across the UK and beyond. At www.johnjones.co.uk professional artists, students and hobbyists can find practical advice, news on exciting exhibitions and creative projects, and an online store with essential art materials from rolls of canvas to bottles of primer!

 John Jones has built a strong and successful working relationship with Matt Robert Arts over several years. We are delighted to offer £500 towards the running of the Salon Art Prize, and act as a continuing supporter of this great creative opportunity. The winner of the Painting Category will receive a £1000 cash prize from John Jones, £500 of artist surfaces materials, and a solo exhibition at the John Jones gallery space. John Jones intends to offer support for the painting prize winner’s artistic practice and encourage the development of their career. Previous winners include Helen Kincaid, Tim Bailey and Julie Cockburn.
