Roger Clarke (A 79-84), Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Bath Spa University, has been selected as a finalist for the National Sculpture Prize in association with the Broomhill Art and Sculpture Foundation. Each year ten short-listed sculptors are selected by a panel of judges and receive £1,000 each to create their proposed sculpture which is then exhibited at the Broomhill Sculpture Park in North Devon at an annual summer exhibition.

For his entry, Roger has produced a spinning sculpture called the ‘Broomhill Spinning Sculpture’ - a two and a half metre tall sculpture that visitors can spin. It is the newest in a series of artworks that Roger started last summer in Latvia with the Roja Rolling Sculpture.

The sculpture was installed in June and can be visited until October when the prize is judged.

You can follow Roger’s production of the sculpture on the National Sculpture Prize blog and vote for your favourite at the Broomhill Art voting page.
