The Devon Open Studios Heather Jansch Award is a new award to commemorate renowned sculptor Heather Jansch who died in July 2021.

The Award celebrates the contribution Heather made to Devon Open Studios – Heather was an enthusiastic participant from the early days, inviting visitors to see her studio and discuss her work.

The recipient of the Award receives a sculpture by Heather Jansch – a small bronze horse head modelled on her own horse, RaRa. The sculpture has been donated by Heather’s family and will be kept for one year before passing on to the next awardee.

The Award will be made annually to recognise the contribution to Devon Open Studios by one artist or venue, reflecting Heather’s part in making the event a success.

In its first year, the Award celebrates an outstanding contribution during the history of Devon Open Studios. Themes will vary from year to year to acknowledge the contribution of a variety of artists, including emerging and established, individual and groups, as well as a variety of artforms. A key criterion each year will be the warmth of welcome of the Open Studios venue and its popularity with visitors.
