Looking Forward

‘After a year of being locked-down, shut-down and closed in, this show is a chance to reflect on past experiences, or look to the future and expand our horizons… Art can give us a way to explore our own souls – there has been a powerful energy in the NSA during these times of change and we’d like to invite people to come and share this. In the beautiful space of Tremenheere Gallery, you will undoubtedly find ‘Looking Forward’ thoughtful, serious, joyful, sometimes playful… and up-lifting’, Yolande Armstrong, Chair of the NSA.

The exhibition is subject to government guidelines

Since it was founded in 1994, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize has established a reputation as the UK’s most important annual exhibition of drawing. Led by Professor Anita Taylor, the Prize is known for supporting artists, celebrating contemporary drawing, and championing the art form’s role. And it’s back for its 26th edition in 2021! The exhibition and awards are open to applications by emerging, mid-career and established drawing practitioners UK-wide and internationally and the exhibition will be launched at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London in September 2021 before touring to venues across the UK. A fully illustrated publication will be produced to accompany the exhibition.

The deadline for entries is Tuesday 15th June 5pm. Full submission details can be found here.

 

NSA Member Kate Walters will be running two Summer Solstice workshops in June near St Just in West Cornwall.

Kate explains what to expect in the workshops:

They will be held outside on a beautiful wild and open Common not far from St. Just. There’s a strong and rocky Carn, a stone circle, a meadow, old tracks, and a group of 5000 year old holed stones. It will involve walking quietly and steadily for around 2-3 km, with frequent stops for rest, prayer and tuning-in. We will draw, make notes, and take time to tune in to wild and impeccable place…the coming of summer, and of course the Sun!

The cost per person is £50 and full details and booking information can be found on her blog.
