The Corke Art Gallery has agreed to become one of the sponsors of the 2018 John Moores Painting Prize.

The Corke Gallery is committed to selling original paintings and artworks and so we are delighted to give this fantastic painting prize, in our home city, the support it deserves in its 60th Year.

The gallery is currently trying to organise a programme of exhibitions by artists whose work has appeared in the John Moores Painting Prize exhibitions since it started in 1957.

We have in the past exhibited work by 2006 winner Martin Greenland as well as various artists who have had their work shown in the final JMPP exhibition.
