Drawings entered for the prestigious 2001 Jerwood Drawing Prize will be on display at the EICH Gallery in Hull from Monday next week.


The gallery, which is part of the University of Lincoln and attached to the Hull School of Architecture on George Street, will display the drawings until 14th December 2001.


“It’s a real coup for us as the drawings have only been on show at two other venues,” said Kathie Jenkins, curator of the EICH (European Illustration Collection Hull) Gallery.


The drawings have been on display at the University of Gloucestershire and the  Alberto Vilar Gallery at The Prince's Foundation in London. After it leaves Hull the exhibition will also be shown in Geneva.


The selection panel for the contest comprised Frances Carey, deputy keeper of prints and drawings at the British Museum, Richard Cork, writer and chief art critic of The Times, and Angela Kingston, writer, curator and senior researcher in drawing at the Wimbledon School of Art.


A total of 1,400 drawings were entered and the winner was Condition (Blue) 2001
by Kate Davis.


The gallery will be open from Monday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm for the duration of the exhibition, to which entry is free.
