About the RVAF Award
The Roscommon Visual Artists’ Forum Award supported by Roscommon Arts Centre & Roscommon County Council Arts Office was established by curator in residence Linda Shevlin to provide visual artists based in or from the county with a platform to develop their practice. In response to the needs and requirements of the artists in the county, the RVAF award was set up in 2015.
Naomi Draper was selected from an open call and was supported with a production budget, a residency at ArtBox, Dublin and an exhibition at both Roscommon Arts Centre & ArtBox.
