A £1,000 bursary has been launched in Wiltshire to support local artists.

Applications for the Althea Wynne bursary are open to artists living or working in Wiltshire, who work in a 3D medium (excluding jewellery).

Funded by the Friends of the Garden at Avebury Manor, the bursary was started in memory of Althea Wynne, a prominent Wiltshire sculptor who died last year.

As part of the application process, there will be two exhibitions of work by shortlisted candidates at the Young Gallery in Salisbury and at Pound Arts in Corsham.

Applications close on April 30.
