The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. The aim is to explore and celebrate the diversity, excellence and range of current drawing practice.

The exhibition this year reflects a broad range of approaches to drawing from pencil on paper to video work. The 76 artists were selected from over 3,000 entries by a panel that included Kate Brindley, Director of Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art MIMA, Michael Craig-Martin RA, artist, Charlotte Mullins, art critic, writer, broadcaster and editor of Art Quarterly.

Plymouth College of Art and Plymouth Arts Centre have collaborated to tour this exhibition to Plymouth for the first time and the works are exhibited across both venues.

Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and promoting contemporary drawing practice within the UK. The open exhibition is a platform for drawing practitioners to showcase their work alongside other leading contemporary artists in this field, and provides those selected with the opportunity to contribute to the dialogue and understanding about drawing for current and future generations.

The Founder and Director of Jerwood Drawing Prize, Anita Taylor will give an introduction to the exhibition at both venues.
