One of Australia’s most significant art awards

The annual Wynne Prize was first awarded in 1897 in honour of the official opening of the Art Gallery of New South Wales at its present site.

Judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery, the prize is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery or for the best example of figure sculpture by an Australian artist.

The Wynne Prize reflects the diversity of figurative sculptural practice, while the paintings are a dynamic reflection of Australian artists’ response to the land, reflecting contemporary aesthetics, environmental and stewardship concerns, and conceptions of Country.

This touring exhibition is an opportunity to see the finalists in the Wynne Prize 2023. It marks the first time Australia’s oldest art prize will tour regional New South Wales since its inception, more than 125 years ago.
