The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust and led by its founding Director Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee and Director of Drawing Projects UK.
Selected from original artworks, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize and exhibition has an established reputation for its commitment to promoting excellence in, and celebrating the breadth of, contemporary drawing practice. 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 launched in London and touring widely in the UK. In offering emerging, mid-career and established artists and makers an influential platform to exhibit their drawings, this longstanding exhibition 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 and was known from 1996 until 2000 as the Cheltenham Open Drawing Exhibition, supported by a private benefactor, Westland Nurseries, The Summerfield Trust, CHK Charities and the 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 annual open exhibition was renamed the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize. With Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust as the new funding partner, the exhibition returned to its founding principle of being open to entries from drawing practitioners located across the world, and also established a separate category for a Working Drawing Award and display. For practical reasons, the non-UK/International entries and Working Drawing Award entries have a separate entry process/portal.
Shortlisted drawings will be announced on 20 July 2023.
The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2023 award–winning drawings will be announced on 28 September 2023.
