JADA is Grafton Regional Gallery's flagship art prize, celebrating drawing in all its splendour from hyper-realism that is beyond belief to the expressive and abstract, evoking the poetic and emotional response to the human condition and our environment. Many of the works question and challenge the notion of the traditional drawing; while others provide a contemporary perspective and reinvigorate those traditions.
The Gallery will launch the exhibition on Friday 2 October where Judge, Peter McKay will announce the winner of the $35,000 prize with the works remaining on view until 22 November 2020. Peter is Curatorial Manager of Australian Art at Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art.
