Jerwood Prize

Essex artist Gary Lawrence has won First Prize in the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2011 with his Homage to Anonymous (2011) a large-scale imitation engraving executed in ballpoint pen (one very small detail shown). He dedicated it to "all the anonymous artists through history who made work but are unrecognised". I'll vote for that. The exhibition of 60 selected entries out of 3,500 submitted this year opened on Wednesday at Jerwood Visual Arts in London and runs till 30 October.
