A huge thank you to all the artists and guests who attended the opening of the Drawing Prize last night (Tuesday 5 September)! It was a great evening, and we are proud to announce the winners of the Drawing Prize.
The judges for the exhibition were:
- Barbara Walker, Turner Prize Nominee 2023
- Kate Mason, Cultural leader and changemaker – across arts, heritage, cultural and creative sectors
- Steve Bulcock, Deputy Head of Institute of Creative Arts at Birmingham City University
The high standard of work made the prizes really difficult to select, and the judges were blown away by the level of talent on display in the exhibition.
The exhibition runs till Saturday 14 October. There will be an artist’s talk featuring several of the prize winners and other artists on the final day of the exhibition from 2 – 3pm.
