An Exhibition of 54 Artists' Sketchbooks from the UK's Only National Sketchbook Prize.


At the Black Swan we are welcoming in a new creative year with a chance to view some exceptional artists' sketchbooks, selected for the UK's only national sketchbook competition. The Sketch Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize and exhibition from Rabley Drawing Centre, uniquely promotes the diversity and importance of drawing and the role of the sketchbook in contemporary fine art practice. Fifty-four artists' sketchbooks were selected for the 2013 prize and touring exhibition and we are delighted to be showing them at the gallery this month. A rare opportunity to explore these often private processes. Don't miss it! There will be a special open evening on Friday January 10th, from 6pm — 8pm: An opportunity to meet some of the artists; Meryl Ainslie, the founder of SKETCH will give a short introductory talk and Divas will be open for drinks.
