Cranleigh Barton Drawing Award 2003

Cranleigh Barton Drawing Award 2003

One month left to enter the Cranleigh Barton Award 2003 The Cranleigh Barton Drawing Award was established for New Zealand residents in 1993 to recognise excellence in drawing and to raise its status in visual arts education and practice.

The biennial Award, made possible through the legacy of Canterbury watercolourist Cranleigh Barton (1890 - 1975), is jointly presented by Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, Canterbury Museum, Guardian Trust and the executors of Cranleigh Barton's estate, with support from The Drawing Room.

A panel of judges will select the winner of the major Award ($5,000) plus a merit award ($500). Entries must be received between Monday, 21 July and Friday, 25 July, 2003. A public exhibition of works selected from entries received will be held at the Christchurch Art Gallery from Friday, 5 September to Sunday, 23 November, 2003. The award winner will be announced at the exhibition's opening on Thursday, 4 September, 2003.

Previous recipients of the Award include: Ruth Cleland (2001); Lorraine Webb (1999); Richard Lewer (1997); Nigel Buxton (1995); Michael Dell (1993).

Cranleigh Barton was a lawyer by training but he had a lifelong interest in art. He studied under Maud Sherwood (nèe Kimbell) at the Wellington Technical College in 1906 and balanced his practice as a solicitor with part-time activity as an artist. He began painting full-time in 1919 when he moved to Christchurch. In 1924 he moved to England where he studied at the Slade School of Fine Arts in London. Barton exhibited throughout Britain and returned to Christchurch in 1930 where he remained until his death. Cranleigh Barton's estate bequeathed a wealth of watercolours to The Canterbury Museum.
