Screen Shot 2015-03-26 at 16.50.53

Dean Hughes has donated ‘A Bus Ticket Signed by the Bus Driver’ to the Drawing Biennial 2015 exhibition and auction, which features over 200 new and recent works on paper by established and emerging artists. Artists have been selected by Drawing Room directors Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout, with additional nominations by a panel of leading international artists, museum directors, curators and collectors. Each selected artist has been invited to make an original drawing in any medium on an A4 sheet of paper, which is exhibited in the gallery in a democratic hang that gives each artist equal prominence.

Drawing Biennial 2015 culminates in an auction which runs for the final two weeks of the exhibition, with all works available to bid for via their website. With each drawing starting at only £250 this is a rare opportunity for both new and established collectors to acquire unique works on paper. The sale of the works raises vital funds to support Drawing Room’s programme over the next two years.

Exhibition: 5 March – 30 April 2015

Auction: 16 April 10 am  - 30 April 9pm
