  • SGFA Draw 16 Exhibition

    This October marks the Society of Graphic Fine Art’s 95th Annual Open Exhibition. Draw 16 will showcase original drawings, paintings and prints from both members and non-members. The event will run from 3rd October until 15th October at the Menier Gallery and is open 11am – 6pm daily, although the gallery is closed on Sunday 9th October and the event closes at 5pm on 15th October. There will also be regular workshops running throughout the event’s two week run. More information regarding these can be found on the SGFA’s Facebook page.

    The SGFA was established in 1919 and now contains more than 130 elected members across Britain. It is the UK’s only art society that focuses exclusively on drawing. As well as promoting and refining drawing skills, the SGFA also contributes to the Artists General Benevolent Institution.

    We at Artist Papers are proud to have sponsored this event for the past five years, with this year being no exception. If you get the chance to attend this event then we urge you to take it - you will not be disappointed!

  • Jenny Ross - Best in Show SGFA Draw 19

    Jenny Ross won Best in Show at the SGFA Draw 19 at the Menier Gallery in London this year. Such an interesting image we caught up with Jenny to find out more about the winning image and what inspires her.

    Can you tell us about the winning image? I read on your website that you “map real and imagined spaces” which are drawn from your “own experience and dreams”. Is the winning image a representation of somewhere or a mix of the two?

    The winning image is a picture of potato crates piled up on a farm near my home in Aberdeen, Scotland. I spent a day sitting drawing them. I used layers of ink and pen to create the drawing and wanted to capture the light coming from behind them. I made the surroundings unclear to sustain interest and mystery.

    What media is it in? What media do you prefer and why is that in particular? Have you used any other media? How do you approach your art?

    I used ink and some oil
