Falmouth four triumph in art prize
Four talented artists with a link to Falmouth University have been recognised in the UK's largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing, the Jerwood Drawing Prize.
In a shortlist released by judges, three alumni and one member of staff have been selected for the final exhibition.
With over 3,000 submissions, the 2013 standard of entry was exceptional.
An independent panel whittled down the ensemble to a final shortlist, which included four Falmouth entries.

The four included three BA(Hons) Fine Art alumni, Paul Brady (1993), Susannah Douglas (2003), Olivia Jones (2013) and Catrin Morgan, associate lecturer in MA Illustration: Authorial Practice.
Drawing, as a discipline in its own right, was introduced at Falmouth in 2011 and offers a pure education in drawing, encompassing a wide range of approaches, traditions and applications.
Phil Naylor, head of drawing and foundation, said it was an important technique.
“We believe that drawing sits right at the centre of visual practice, a core subject that encapsulates the essentials of the visual arts, but also translates across the broader terrain of science, technology and the wider cultural world,” he said.
The exhibition is currently on display at Jerwood Space until Sunday, October 27, and will subsequently tour venues across the UK including Plymouth, Newcastle and Canterbury.
