Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes
Art Gallery Road, The Domain, NSW, 2000, Australia
29th July 2017 to 22nd October 2017
Australia’s most extraordinary art event. The Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes is an annual exhibition eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike. The Archibald Prize, first awarded in 1921, is Australia’s favourite art award, and one of its most prestigious. Awarded to the best portrait painting, it’s a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists. The Wynne Prize is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery, or figure sculpture, while the Sulman Prize is given to the best subject painting, genre painting or mural project in oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media. Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne, and invite an artist to judge the Sulman. Visit the exhibition to vote for your favourite portrait in the People’s Choice award before voting closes, and see the work of budding artists aged five -18 on display in the Young Archies.
