Exhibition dates: 9 May - 12 June 2015
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.
