Gary Lawrence has been awarded the First Prize of £6,000 for his drawing Homage to Anonymous in the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2011. His work, along with that of the 60 short-listed artists will be shown at BayArt, Cardiff.
The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. Judged by an independent panel of selectors, the Prize aims to recognise and support all UK based artists, from student to established, working in the field of drawing.
Approximately 3,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration by the distinguished panel of selectors: Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery; Tim Marlow, writer, broadcaster and Director of Exhibitions, White Cube; and Rachel Whiteread, artist. The shortlist includes established artists as well as relative newcomers and students fresh from art school.
