9th Annual Drawing Discourse Exhibition

Call Type: Exhibitions
Eligibility: International
City: Asheville
State: North Carolina
Fee: $30.00
Entry Deadline: 11/19/17

EXHIBITION: As part of an ongoing commitment to promote drawing practices in the visual arts, the University of North Carolina Asheville (UNC Asheville) invites artists to submit entries to a Juried International Exhibition of contemporary drawing. UNC Asheville seeks to examine drawing as it is practiced and defined by today’s artists. Such an exhibition will demonstrate the continued significance of drawing through both conventional and innovative methods. Accepted work will be exhibited in UNC Asheville’s S. Tucker Cooke Gallery from January 19, 2018 through February 23, 2018.

Esteemed juror, Stuart Shils, will be present and open the exhibition with a lecture about his practice on January 19, 2018; an opening reception for Drawing Discourse will follow immediately after the lecture.

MEDIA: In effort to support the breadth in international contemporary drawing, media is open to any traditional or experimental drawing media including but not limited to two or three-dimensional works, video or installation.

AWARDS: $2000 in cash prizes, as chosen in person by the juror, will be awarded during the exhibition opening reception. This award amount has doubled this year due to the generous contribution from Professor Emeritus, S. Tucker Cooke.
