Rabley Drawing Centre will present a solo exhibition of Jackie Berridge's work (in addition to the touring exhibition).   Naomi Frears is invited to work in collaboration with Rabley Press to publish a limited edition fine art print.   Plymouth College of Art have awarded collaborative opportunities including studio time and materials budget to Meg Buick to develop her work.

“Handling a sketchbook takes us to the heart of the space inhabited by the artist. The turning of a page brings a flow of ideas: fragments of images to come, references to places visited, experiences absorbed and thoughts provoked. It is a unique and privileged position, the prospect excites and the time spent rewards.”   Meryl Ainslie. Director, Rabley Drawing Centre.

The SKETCH 2013 Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize and Exhibition uniquely promotes the diversity and importance of drawing and the role of the sketchbook in contemporary fine art practice. This year fifty-four sketchbooks have been selected from national open submissions by a distinguished panel of judges:
