The Wynne Prize 2023

February 9 @ 6:00 pm - April 7 @ 4:00 pm

New England Regional Art Museum is delighted to host The Wynne Prize 2023 exhibition which is touring from the Art Gallery of New South Wales for the first time since it began over 125 years ago, giving our local community the chance to see the best of Australian contemporary landscape painting and sculpture.

The $50,000 Wynne Prize is an open competition judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales and awarded annually to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery or figure sculpture, alongside the Archibald and Sulman Prizes. The Wynne Prize is Australia’s oldest art prize and was established following a bequest by Richard Wynne who died in 1895. It was first awarded in 1897 to mark the official opening of the Art Gallery at its present site.
