TALK: 2B or not 2B: Why Draw?


Saturday 12 October, 5:30pm  Bookings

For the first time in its history, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is coming to Salisbury, showcasing the best of contemporary drawing practice and highlighting the role and value of drawing in creative practice today. To mark the opening day of the exhibition at the Salisbury Museum Messums Wiltshire is hosting a panel discussion to examine why we draw and the relevance and importance of drawing and draftsmanship in 2019.

Our panel consists of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize and Drawing Projects UK Founder and Director Anita Taylor, one of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize prize selectors, and artist and lecturer Saied Dai, as well as shortlisted artists from this year’s prize.

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize, formerly the Jerwood Drawing Prize, is the largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK and the exhibition has a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and promoting, celebrating and challenging contemporary drawing practice.

This is a ticketed event and will be followed by supper in our Mess Restaurant and a chance to continue the conversation.
