Selected from original drawings, the exhibition has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and to promoting, celebrating and challenging contemporary drawing practice. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2018 exhibition includes a diverse selection of work which explores the nature, role and value of drawing in creative practice today. The shortlist of 69 drawings by 67 practitioners - ranging from students to established artists - were selected from 1,703 submissions received from across the UK. The independent selection panel comprised Nigel Hall RA, artist; Megan Piper, contemporary art dealer; and Chris Stephens, Director of the Holburne Museum in Bath.
