Chidera Ugada 8 years ago

To co-host the 6th Drawing Prize has been a great opportunity for me to actively get involved in the practicality of the art industry. The main objective of this competition is to encourage and to promote the excellence of drawing within the university. Eligibility to take part was open just to students and staff both past and present. With the most entries this year, the selection is composed of a variety of mediums ranging from sculpture to video and photography, print and large-scale drawings.

After several months of planning the event, we finally had a successful preview with great attendance at the Lewis gallery in Rugby on the 13th of March. Congrats to students Charlotte Pattison and Zivile Steniukynaite, who received the exhibition prize for the opportunity the display work in the gallery and the student cash prize of £500 respectively. Also, congrats to lecturer Mandy Havers who recieved the staff prize for the opportunity to exhibit in the gallery.

The show has proven to be successful as all are invited to the second preview at the Atkins Gallery in Hinckley on the 16th of April. In the show, we would be announcing the Viewers Favourite Prize, which was voted by the public. The show is scheduled to end on the 7th of May.
