The Drawing Year End of Year Exhibition 2013-14
Our Shoreditch Gallery was inundated with guests who came to view a selection of drawings by our talented outgoing Drawing Year 2013-14 students at the opening of their end of year exhibition last Thursday night.
Our External Assessment Board awarded several prizes to students they felt had shown exceptional talent and promise, and we were delighted to have the Board’s Chair, Andrea Rose, previously Director of Visual Arts at the British Council for over 20 years, in attendance to present them on the night. For the first time, this year The Sir Denis Mahon Award was awarded at The Drawing Year exhibition. We are delighted to announce that this prestigious award was presented to Rosie Vohra.
