Kedumba Drawing Award 2017
16 December 2017 – 21 January 2018
The Kedumba Drawing Award is now an annual highlight at Orange Regional Gallery, having moved here in 2014 from the Blue Mountains. Now in its 28th year, the Award continues to play a vital role in fostering the production and appreciation of drawing in Australia.
Initiated by Jeffrey and Marlene Plummer in 1989, the Kedumba Drawing Award has grown steadily to now be considered the premier drawing award in Australia, and a major event in the nation’s visual calendar. New works selected become part of the Kedumba Collection of Australian Drawings. The judge’s only guideline is “to enrich and enhance the Collection”.
Congratulations to Chris Browne and Jane Grealy – the Kedumba Drawing Award recipients for 2017. This year’s judge, Dr Derek Whitehead, selected a work by both artists for the Kedumba Collection of Australian Drawings.
This year 20 artists from across Australia were invited to submit a recent drawing. The Kedumba Collection of Australian Drawings, with over 230 works, is currently on long term loan to Orange Regional Gallery.
