Touring to RAG in 2017, the Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA) is the Grafton Regional Gallery's biennial flagship art prize, promoting innovation and excellence in contemporary Australian drawing. Established in 1988, the JADA provides an exclusive opportunity for artists to explore the medium of drawing while allowing the Grafton Regional Gallery to collect a unique and impressive collection of contemporary Australian drawings.
