The Kanagawa Prefectural Art Exhibition started in 1965 with the aim of contributing to the improvement of prefectural culture and the development of writers. Since then, it has been popular as the prefecture's premier publicly-offered art exhibition, and has sent many excellent artists to the world as a gateway to emerging artists.
We have started nationwide open recruitment from the 52nd exhibition in 2016, and aim to further revitalize this open recruitment exhibition by mutually stimulating each other through works that transcend regions. The prize of up to 2 million yen, which is one of the best in Japan, is also a big attraction. In addition, this exhibition consists of four categories: two-dimensional objects, crafts, books, and photographs. At the same time, you can enjoy a variety of art works in one place, and at the same time, one of the highlights is the exhibition of large works that make use of the large space of the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall Gallery. is.

This time, we interviewed the artists who won the grand prize in each category of the 55th exhibition about a wide range of topics, from the motives for applying to the activities after the award.
