Exhibition Dates: 17 Sep - 26 Oct 2014
A total of 52 drawings by 46 artists are brought together in this group exhibition as part of the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. The works were selected from more than 3,000 submissions by Gavin Delahunty, Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Dallas Museum; Dr Janet McKenzie, author and Co-editor of Studio International; and Alison Wilding RA, artist. Selected from original drawings, the Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence, and to promoting and celebrating the breadth of contemporary drawing practice. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of UK-based drawing practitioners, from student to established, and as a project helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice.
