My drawing Two-Faced Woman is one of 72 works shortlisted for the Rick Amor Drawing Prize 2012. I understand that there were over 600 submissions this year, which is surely a positive sign that drawing is alive and well and kicking.

Rick Amor is quoted on the invitation: “I hope that this prize gives people one more reason to keep drawing on paper…the most direct and intimate expression of an artist’s sensibility”

The opening event is on Friday 27 April at 6 pm, with formalities commencing at 6.30 pm.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 28 April – Sunday 24 June.
