Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award 2022 exhibition

Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award 2022

The Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award, organised by Grafton Regional Gallery, celebrates Australian contemporary drawing at its finest. Established in 1988, JADA is one of Australia’s most prestigious art awards with a $35,000 major prize.

Many of the works capture the spectrum of current drawing practice, from expressive and abstract to hyper-realistic. Some question and push the understanding of traditional drawing practices whilst others reinvigorate contemporary perspective.

The Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award 2022 exhibition is developed by Grafton Regional Gallery. The Grafton Regional Gallery is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW. This project is supported by the Friends of Grafton Gallery and the Yulgilbar Foundation. 

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
