Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award

Exhibition and Shows

13 Mar 2021 to 16 May 2021 Once Only Event

Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA) is Grafton Regional Gallery’s flagship art prize, sponsored by the Friends of the Gallery.

Established in 1988 the JADA celebrates drawing in all its splendour from hyper-realism to the expressive and abstract. Each evokes a poetic and emotional response to the human condition and our environment. Many of the works question and challenge the notion of traditional drawing; while others provide a contemporary perspective and reinvigorate those traditions.

In 2020 the AUD35,000 prize received a record 659 entries from 521 artists throughout Australia with 56 finalists selected for the exhibition and subsequent tour.
