Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Awards

Thursday 26 March–Friday 24 April

A touring exhibition of Australia’s foremost drawing awards from Grafton Regional Gallery (GRG), this exhibition presents some of Australia’s best drawings. Blue Mountains’ artist John Philippidies won the major prize of $15,000 with his drawing Portrait 2 at the exhibition in Grafton in October 2008. The work is a portrait of the artist’s mother who has been the subject of many of his works.

The judge of the 2008 JADA was Hendrick Kolenberg, Senior Curator of Australian Prints, Drawings and Watercolours at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The GRG also acquired a further six works from the exhibition that will join their already impressive collection of Australian drawing.
