The largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK, presented in collaboration with Bath Spa University. In 2016 works will be selected for inclusion by Glenn Brown, artist; Stephanie Buck, Director of Kupferstich-Kabinett at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden; and Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford.
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.
