Sketch 2011
  The UK's only national award for artist sketchbooks
Sketch
 

The sketchbook is the most intimate creative form, it is the space where our ideas first become concrete and echoes of our ideas unravel, it is a space for visual thinking. For some contemporary artists the sketchbook is the work, for others a window on the world, to record and hold information. For most it is the liminal space between the genesis of an idea and the making. The sketchbook is revered by artists and respected by the public, the locked room they are rarely able to enter. This exhibition reveals the thoughts and images of contemporary artists, investigates the role of the sketchbook in creative art practice and the relationship between drawing and other media.

Meryl Ainslie - Curator and director of Rabley Drawing Centre
 
The SKETCH Drawing Prize is the UK’s only award for artist sketchbooks, with a dedicated sketchbook exhibition. Forty two Sketchbooks were selected by a distinguished panel of selectors: Deanna Petheridge, artist, academic and author of ‘The Primacy of Drawing, Histories and Theories of Practice'; Sandy Sykes, artist and the curator and director of Rabley Drawing Centre, Meryl Ainslie. The shortlist includes established artists, relative newcomers and students fresh from art school.
