Exhibition: Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award

Exhibition and Shows

15 Oct 2021 to 28 Nov 2021 Once Only Event

The Grafton Regional Gallery presents the 2020 Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA). The JADA is the Gallery’s flagship biennial art prize graciously sponsored by the Friends of Grafton Gallery.

It is with great pleasure that the Grafton Regional Gallery presents the 2020 Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA), especially in these challenging times. The JADA is the Gallery’s flagship biennial art prize graciously sponsored by the Friends of Grafton Gallery

The project develops every two years and, as the gallery expands in 2020, the JADA continues to celebrate Australian contemporary drawing at its finest. This year that tradition of excellence continues with 56 artists selected from a record 659 entries for the exhibition. The exhibition will continue its touring legacy by travelling to communities across Australia and promoting contemporary drawing to regional audiences for the next two years

The JADA celebrates drawing in all its forms. From the expressive and the abstract to the hyper-realism that is beyond belief, the works evoke a poetic and emotional response to our environment and the human condition. Many of the finalists selected questions and challenge the notion of the traditional drawing, while others provide a contemporary perspective and reinvigorate those traditions.
