raised of £10,000 target by 354 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to establish the Judith Tucker Art Prize in her memory.

Don't have time to donate right now?



Thank you for taking time to visit this page, set up in haste following the sudden death of Judith Tucker in a car accident in November.

Judith was not simply an outstanding artist, curator, teacher and academic, she was a life-force. She inspired and infected others with her passion and she was the most generous of artists, a catcher and giver of light.

We can think of no more fitting tribute than to add to her legacy by establishing an art prize in her name and in her memory.

Please do give what you can. Your donations will be managed by a small group of people, trusted and admired by Judith. Prof. Griselda Pollock, Lubaina Himid CBE RA and Prof. Harriet Tarlo will be part of that group.

For those who aren't familiar with Judith's work, you can find out more here.

"Her tremendous ability to body forth the living, entangled, glowing energies of the world in her unique and distinctive work is always astonishing".

    Dear friends Thank you so much for your donations which have continued to flood in, and exceeded our increased target of £10,000. We will not raise the target again, but please do continue to donate as you feel moved to do so. Everything raised here will go towards this cause that Judy would have loved. We are moved and heartened by your generosity and your messages. Thank you

    Friends, we are overwhelmed and deeply grateful that we have reached our original target within 24 hours, so we have increased the target to enable us to reach more people in Judy's name. Your comments show us that you recognise this is the best way to remember her long beyond the day of her funeral. Here is a detail of the painting of Viper's Bugloss Judith was working on at the time of her death.

    Judy played a significant role in my life during my undergraduate time as an international student at Leeds. Her unwavering support, understanding, and guidance meant the world to me.

    Great experience working with Judith many years ago. Such integrity and generosity in all things.

    Judy was understandably exasperated by me as a pupil at school: I favoured music over art. It shouldn't have been either/or. I wish I could have told her about my journey since to support visual arts.
