The sketchbook is the most intimate creative form, it is the space where our ideas first become concrete and echoes of our ideas unravel a space for thought. For some contemporary artists this intimate form is the ‘work’, for others it is a place to record and hold information. For most it is the hinterland between the genesis of an idea and ‘the making”   Meryl Ainslie.
The SKETCH 2013 Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize and exhibition of artists’ sketchbooks promotes the diversity and importance of drawing and the role of the sketchbook in contemporary fine art practice. Sketchbooks will be selected for a national touring exhibition through open submission from artists and students of art, resident or domiciled in the UK.
£5000 WORTH OF PRIZES:
Rabley Fine Art Print Editioning Prize – The selected artist will be invited to work in collaboration with Rabley Press to publish a limited edition fine art print.
Exhibition Prize – The selected artist will be offered a solo exhibition (in addition to the touring exhibition).
