Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019




The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 selection panel will comprise Chantal Joffe RA, artist; Andrew Nairne OBE, Director of Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge; and Dorothy Price, Reader in History of Art at the University of Bristol, and Editor of Art History. Together they will select around 65 drawings for an exhibition that will launch at Trinity Buoy Wharf before touring to venues nationwide from September 2019 to July 2020.

Led by founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor of Bath School of Art & Design at Bath Spa University and Drawing Projects UK, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is selected from original drawings and has an established reputation for promoting, celebrating and championing excellence in contemporary drawing practice. Artists and makers selected for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 will be eligible for awards of a total value of £27,000. A First Prize of £8000; a Second Prize of £5000; a Student Award of £2000; and a Working Drawing Prize that has increased in value to £2000 this year. These awards will be chosen by the selection panel and announced at the launch of the exhibition and Awards Ceremony on 25 September 2019 at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London.

Following the success of the first Evelyn Williams Drawing Award, the Evelyn Williams Trust will generously support an award of £10,000 in 2019. Barbara Walker MBE was the first recipient of the Evelyn Williams Drawing Award 2017, and her solo exhibition Vanishing Point was held at Jerwood Gallery in Hastings (20 October 2018 to 6 January 2019) with loans from the National Gallery supported by the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund. The Evelyn Williams Drawing Award of £10,000 will support an artist with an already established exhibiting (or equivalent) career selected for Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 to develop a new solo exhibition. The award will be made on the basis of proposals, invited from by the selected artists, and chosen by a panel comprising a Trustee of the Evelyn Williams Trust, the Director/Curator of the Gallery, and the Director of Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.

Online registration for artists entering the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize will close at 5pm on Wednesday 26 June 2019. Once registered, applicants then submit their works through one of the regional collection centres on dates in early July 2019.
