The Hermitage Artist Retreat along with the Greenfield Foundation are pleased to announce that Painter Trenton Doyle Hancock is the winner of the $30,000 Greenfield Prize, awarded this year in visual art. Hancock was selected from a small group of finalists that included Nicole Eisenman, Maureen Gallace and Byron Kim. The jury that selected Hancock included Dan Cameron, chief curator of the Orange County Museum of Art; Valerie Cassel Oliver, head curator of Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, and James Rondeau, chair and Dittmer curator of the department of contemporary art at The Art Institute of Chicago. The award will be presented to Hancock at the annual Greenfield Prize Dinner on Sunday, April 21, in Sarasota, FL.


We congratulate Trenton and look forward to meeting him in April. The award presentation is the official kick-off for a two-year process in which he will create a new work of art or body of work that eventually will be shared with art lovers across the country and around the world. Bob Greenfield’s vision when he created the Greenfield Prize was to support individual artists in a way that would allow them to work unencumbered by boundaries and create meaningful work that impacts our society. We look forward to doing whatever we can to assist Trenton in fulfilling that goal.
