20 August to 16 October
The Kedumba Drawing Award is now an annual highlight at Orange Regional Gallery having moved here from the Blue Mountains in 2014. Each year, approximately 20 artists are invited to submit a recent drawing for the exhibition, from which the judge (usually an artist) acquires works for the Kedumba Collection. This means that around five or so new drawings enter the Kedumba Collection of Australian Drawings annually, which is now on long term loan to Orange Regional Gallery.
The 2016 Acquisitions Judge is Paul Delprat.
