Cornish alum wins one of art’s most coveted prizes

Aleah Chapin, a painter and 2008 graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, has won first prize in the prestigious BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The BP awards are considered a top showcase for young figurative artists, and winners’ works often become popular among collectors. Besides having her name associated with all that, Chapin wins 25,000 pounds (about $40,000), and exposure: her painting, titled “Auntie,” will hang in the NPG until Sept. 23.
