JADA: Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award

Adam Cusack In plain sight 2016, 2016 JADA Winner, Charcoal on paper


27 January - 3 March 2018

​Experience the richness and diversity of contemporary drawing in the 2016 Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA), the flagship prize of the Grafton Regional Gallery​. The exhibition features 47 finalists from across Australia, who take a range of approaches to this primary means of expression. While drawing has long been “disrupted” by a succession of new technologies, from printing and photography through to new digital media, this exhibition demonstrates that drawing retains its power to astound us.
