The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2005
The exhibition, formerly The Cheltenham Open Drawing exhibition, has been an annual open show since 1996 and became The Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2001. The aim of the exhibition is to promote and reward talent and excellence in contemporary drawing. As the UK’s largest annual open drawing competition of its calibre, the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2005 has attracted 2600 entries from throughout the UK, from both professional, non-professional and student artists. The exhibition includes 78 drawings by 71 artists.
Every year, the changing panel of distinguished artists, writers, critics, collectors and curators select the show independently and without knowledge of the artists submitting; they define their own priorities for an exhibition of current drawing practice. This fashions a constantly shifting set of values and concerns, evidenced in the resulting touring exhibitions, in which fundamental questions are asked about what drawing is: its purpose, value, relevance and nature.
This publication records the winners of the 2005 prize and includes some information about the competition and its supporters.
