Up and coming young visual artists benefited from the biannual Tierney Fellowship workshops that took place recently at the Michaelis School of Fine Art under the auspices of the Market Photo Workshops, WITS and the Michaelis School of Fine Art.

Created by Matthew Tierney in 2003, the fellowship identifies talented artists and photographic leaders and assists them in advancing their careers. At the workshop, the fellows had the opportunity to present and discuss their work with distinguished artists and academics such as David Goldblatt and Marilyn Martin.

The Tierney fellows work with mentors to develop a body of work for a professional exhibition. The 2014/15 Tierney fellows include Thandiwe Msebenzi from Michaelis who is mentored by UCT's Jean Brundrit and Svea Josephy.
