Jerwood Drawing Prize
Jerwood Drawing Prize 2016
14 September - 23 October 2016
The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK.
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 within the UK. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of 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. The longevity of the Prize, which has been running since 1994, is a testament to the appetite of the artists who make drawings, and the continued interest of audiences visiting the exhibition, making it one of the most popular shows in the Jerwood Visual Arts programme.
Exhibiting artists will be announced in due course.
