My charcoal drawing has been chosen for the Derwent Art prize

I am thrilled that my charcoal drawing ‘ End Of The Day’ has been chosen by the Derwent Art Prize 2020 to be part of their exhibitions in London and Paris.

What is the Derwent art prize?

Derwent is a fine art brand of drawing materials that dates back to 1832.

If you are in the area then pay a visit to the Derwent museum in Keswick, the home of the first pencil.The museum sees you enter a replica graphite mine and then follows the history of graphite from humble beginnings to modern day production.

The Derwent art prize is in it’s fifth year and aims to reward excellence by showcasing the very best artworks created using a drawing medium by British and International artists, and attracts entries from all over the world.  The selectors included Victoria Pomery OBE (Director of the Turner contemporary), artist Charles Avery and Alice Rawsthorn OBE British design critic and author.

Eighty pieces have been selected from the thousands of entries and these will  be exhibited at the Gallery@OXO, London from the 22 April until the 3 of May and then for the first time the exhibition will travel to  20 rue Saint Claude, Paris from the 12-16 May.
