Isabel Seligman said of the selection process: “It was a real privilege and pleasure to see the incredible diversity and quality of drawings submitted – from the painstaking and minutely-observed to the throwaway, exuberant and extravagant and I never expected the process to be laced with so much joy and surprise.” 

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize project is led by its founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at the University of Dundee, and is supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust. Anita Taylor will convene this Drawing Discussion.

The exhibition is currently on tour to The Willis Museum and Sainsbury Gallery in Basingstoke.
