The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is led by founding Director Professor Anita Taylor at Bath Spa University and supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust. Selected from original art works, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize and exhibition has an established reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and promoting and celebrating the breadth of contemporary drawing practice within the UK. This open exhibition is a platform for drawing practitioners to showcase their work alongside other leading contemporary artists and makers in the field, with the exhibition touring widely in the UK. In offering emerging, mid-career and established artists and makers a national platform to exhibit their work, the project has developed new insights into the role and value of drawing in creative practice today. The project was founded in 1994 as the Rexel Derwent Open Drawing Exhibition. It was known from 1996 until 2000 as the Cheltenham Open Drawing exhibition and was supported by a private benefactor, Westland Nurseries, The Summerfield Trust, CHK Charities and Rootstein Hopkins Foundation. From 2001 to 2017, the exhibition was supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation and known as Jerwood Drawing Prize. Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust became the principal benefactor in 2018 and the exhibition was renamed the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize. Shortlisted exhibitors will be announced in July 2019.
