Thank You Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2021

Alas, like all good things they must pass. 9 months have passed, three exhibitions in London, Trowbridge and Dundee, and a total of 1100 miles travelled since I received the news my pencil portrait drawing of my wife, Jayne, had been selected for the UK’s most important prize for contemporary drawing: the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2021.

This distinction is a significant milestone in any artist’s career and I know I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the help, support, and encouragement from all my family, friends and followers along the way. I would like to thank the organisers of this incredible open exhibition of drawing. It has been an honour and a pleasure to have my artwork, ‘Moment of Inertia’, to share wall space with such talented drawing artists.

Promotion Poster

I still wonder how I made it through the selection process. You may recall that 3,300 entries from 1,673 artists and makers, 101 drawings by 89 creatives were selected for the 2021 exhibition. The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize has an established reputation as the UK’s most important annual open exhibition of drawing. Happily, I will soon be reunited with my portrait of Jayne. Returned home to Studio 6 in the Foxlowe Arts Centre, Leek. If you wish to take a closer look you can contact me, either: 07592 779968 or gavinbowyer45@gmail.com
