"In an age of the virtual, when the chosen means of expression for many artists is film, photograph, text or even sound, the primacy of drawing may seem under threat. However, in many instances, drawing remains as crucial for artists who are at the forefront of innovation as it does for those who maintain a commitment to a more traditional language." - from the foreword by Sir Nicholas Serota
Good Old Drawing: G.O.D. is a celebration of drawing that brings together the work of a hundred well-known artists and illustrators to showcase the extraordinary range and diversity of drawing. The drawings represented are testament to the power, scope and diversity of the art form.
G.O.D. is a part of a trust established to encourage drawing through the sponsorship of a prize, busaries to support students on field trips and the supply of art materials to art colleges abroad.
