More About the exhibitions:
All Over The Place: Drawing Place, Drawing Space.
Recent drawings by 17 artists in the group LAND2 and the Drawing Research Group (Lincoln) explore the relationship between the act of drawing and the experience of place. LAND2 is a national, creative practice-led research network of artists, lecturers and students with an interest in contemporary landscape and place-oriented art practice.
Jerwood Contemporary Painters:
An exhibition of 24 emerging painters selected by Paul Huxley RA, Callum Innes and Vanessa Jackson.
This innovative and diverse exhibition provides a unique opportunity for emerging artists at a particular stage in their development, between student and recognised artist. The exhibition supports imaginative and vibrant practice in contemporary painting by encouraging young artists during what can be their most creative period. Each of the participating artists, who must have graduated since 2000, receives an equal share of £30,000 to support them at this critical point in their careers. This fee is unusual to other prizes as it rewards every artist in the show.
The Drawing Shed
In this participatory project artists are invited to make new work on the exterior of a black shed. The project will evolve as new artworks are created over the course of the exhibition.
