The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize has an established reputation as the UK’s most important annual open exhibition of drawing. Led since its creation by Professor Anita Taylor (Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee), the exhibition is known for its promotion and celebration of excellence in contemporary drawing practice.
The annual exhibitions are selected by a roster of passionate and distinguished drawing experts - artists, architects, curators, designers, writers, and collectors. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust, and 2021 marks the fourth year of their generous support for the annual open exhibition, which was founded in 1994.
