14 September – 30 October 2011 Two of Bethan's drawings have been selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2011 exhibition. The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. Judged by an independent panel of selectors, the Prize aims to recognise and support all UK based artists, from student to established, working in the field of drawing.
From a submission of 3,500 entries, the 2011 selectors, Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery; Tim Marlow, writer, broadcaster and Director of Exhibitions, White Cube; and Rachel Whiteread, artist, have brought together 70 drawings that represent and celebrate the diversity, excellence and range of current drawing practice in the UK.
The exhibition runs until 30 October at Jerwood Space in London, before touring nationally. Read JVA Writer in Residence, Chris Fite-Wassilak's piece on Bethan's practice on the JVA blog.
