Jason Bowyer PPNEAC PS RP (1957-2019)
Jason Bowyer was a great many things to the art world: a talented painter, draughtsman, and passionate teacher, of course; one of our members, as well as a member of The Pastel Society, and the New English Art Club, too. He was Past President of the New English Art Club, no less, and founder of the New English’s Drawing School. Beyond which, he was a multiple prize-winner including The Prince of Wales’s Award for Portrait Drawing in 2015, a prize giver of The Bowyer Drawing Prize since 2017, and frequent prize judge including for the Hermione Hammond Drawing Award in 2017. This award is to encourage emerging artists, an endeavour close to Jason’s heart.
