Jerwood Drawing Prize 2015

jerwoodlogoThe Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition of UK drawings. Last year the Jerwood Drawing Prize celebrated twenty years of the prize exhibitions. This year is another milestone, it’s not fifteen years since the Jerwood Charitable Foundation began supporting the prize.  The Prize reinterprets drawing, questions the boundaries and acts as a platform to widening the understanding of drawing.

As a society that is dedicated to drawing it’s exciting to see that drawings are still popular.

Jerwood Drawing Prize is a joint initiative, led by Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Bath School of Art and Design at Bath Spa University and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation through its contemporary gallery programme Jerwood Visual Arts in London and on tour nationally.
