Hennessy Craig Award 2022 Winner Cecilia Danell

The Royal Hibernian Academy of Arts are delighted to announce that the Hennessy Craig Award 2022 of €20,000 has been awarded to Cecilia Danell.

The award is made based on the overall practice of the artist and is open to any painter under the age of 35 who has exhibited in the open submission section of the Academy’s Annual Exhibition with 5 artists shortlisted each year.

The Hennessy Craig Award, in memory of H. Robertson Craig RHA and Patrick Hennessy RHA, was created through a generous bequest to the Academy by Henry Robertson Craig and the terms under which it is awarded are those specified in his will. The Award is open to any painter under the age of thirty-five exhibiting in the open submission section of the Academy’s Annual Exhibition. The painter must have studied at a recognised art college on the island of Ireland.

The Hennessy Craig Award is made on a biennial basis cumulating with an exhibition of short-listed artists, every two years, at which the recipient of the award will be announced.

In 2020, the Hennessy Craig jury shortlisted five eligible artists from the 190th RHA Annual Exhibition and an additional five artists have been shortlisted from the 191st RHA Annual Exhibition in 2021 and the recipient will be announced during the exhibition.
