Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018 - exhibition & tour

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018 exhibition includes 69 drawings by 67 artists and makers, selected from an overall submission of 1,711 works from across the UK by Nigel Hall RA, artist; Megan Piper, contemporary art dealer; and Dr Chris Stephens, Director of The Holburne Museum in Bath. 

Supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is a unique initiative led by founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor (Executive Dean of Bath School of Art & Design at Bath Spa University and founding Director of Drawing Projects UK). In offering emerging, mid-career and established artists a national platform to exhibit their drawings, the exhibition has established a reputation for supporting and promoting their talent and excellence, and the role and value of drawing more widely. We are thrilled that the Trinity Buoy Drawing Prize 2018 will becoming to Drawing Projects UK in March 2019, after the successful showing of Jerwood Drawing Prize 2017 here in the summer of 2018.
