The SKETCH Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize and touring exhibition aims to promote the diversity and importance of drawing and the role of the sketchbook in contemporary creative practice. The works on show in SKETCH 2017 have been selected from an international submission of over 500 sketchbooks.

Meryl Ainslie, founder and director of Rabley Drawing Centre in Wiltshire who launched the SKETCH Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize in 2005, says: “The handling of a sketchbook takes us to the heart of the space inhabited by the artist. The turning of a page brings a flow of ideas: fragments of images to come, references to places visited, experiences absorbed and thoughts provoked. It is a unique and privileged position, the prospect excites and the time spent rewards.”
