Art Prize Judge's Picks: Kathrin Longhurst

2022 Bluethumb Art prize judge Kathrin Longhurst explains what she will be looking for when judging the Art Prize - "Originality paired with technical skills, a personal story and human connection are important to me. I want art to make me feel, whether it’s melancholy, anger, amusement, or love. Art should not leave you indifferent."
This curation showcases the Bluethumb art Kathrin would love to have in her home.
