This year's theme for the Martha's Vineyard Drawing Prize is 'The Ties That Bind'.

The interpretation of that phrase is completely up to you.

The Ties That Bind can allude to:

  • The complicated ties between people
  • Ties that bind us to places
  • Ties to objects in our lives
  • Emotional or psychological ties
  • Ties of history, culture, shared experience
  • And so on.

We look forward to seeing how you take this theme and make it yours!

Above all else, have some fun and enjoy your time drawing.

Remember the deadline for entry is Sunday, July 28, 2019.
