The Wallace Arts Trust Fourth Award in 2020 went to an oil painting by Martin Basher and Sam Harrison’s Self Portrait Torso, in steel, plaster, blood and ply was the fifth award-winner.

The Wallace Arts First Runner-Up Award went to Virginia Leonard for Cripple made from clay, lustre and resin, and Second Runner-Up is Maryrose Crook with Herxing, oil on canvas. The Wallace Jury Award Winner is Wanda Gillespie for A Counting Frame for Future Beings, wood, brass, beads, coconut shell, table.

This year, due to COVID-19, the Annual Wallace Art Awards has suspended its residential placements as prizes and instead is offering cash awards to the total value of $132,000.
