Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is delighted to announce it will feature The Wynne Prize 2023 exhibition in its 2024 program.

Presented by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, this is the first time the Wynne Prize will tour in its 125 year history. Regional audiences will have the opportunity to see the best of Australian contemporary landscape painting and sculpture close to home. 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.

Actively welcomes people with access needs.
