Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019
Open until 26 September

Welcome to the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 is an annual exhibition of drawings supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust. Founded in 1994, the exhibition project celebrates the role and value of drawing within creative practice and provides a forum to test, evaluate and disseminate current drawing practice within the UK. The annual exhibition is open to all drawing practitioners in the UK who wish to submit drawings for consideration by the annually appointed selection panels.

The Little Drawing Exhibition

The Little Drawing Exhibition celebrates the role of drawing in the development of children from birth to four years old. Some of the drawings are material play and some are clearly recognisable depictions of objects or people. They all have been created by very small children beginning to try and represent the world around them.


Speakers include: Ben Judd, Angela Washko, Sarah Jury, Ayesha Hameed, Kate Pickering, Lucy A. Sames and Bridget Crone, Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, GodXXX Noirphiles and Tom K Kemp

Curated by Daniel Sean Kelly

A series of online talks and films from artists and writers exploring ideas of universe creation as a mode of contemporary arts practice. The works will be shared through different platforms, some live and some pre-recorded, all accessible through this website.
