The largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK, exhibited in Bath for the first time.

About

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.

This year’s shortlisting panel consists of GLENN BROWN, artist; STEPHANIE BUCK, Director of Kupferstich-Kabinett at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden; and PAUL HOBSON, Director of Modern Art Oxford.

The four prize winners receive unconditional cash prizes as follows:  First Prize of £8,000; Second Prize of £5,000; and two Student Awards of £2,000 each.

Jerwood Drawing Prize is a joint initiative, led by PROFESSOR ANITA TAYLOR, at Bath Spa University, School of Art and Design, and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation through its contemporary gallery programme Jerwood Visual Arts. The 20th anniversary of the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition was celebrated in 2014, and in 2015 Jerwood Charitable Foundation marked 15 years of its support for the prize.
