The Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes annual exhibition is back in the Art Gallery of NSW, July 16-October 9.
The exhibition features the artworks of the prize winners and finalists, as well as those of budding artists aged 5-18 on display in the Young Archies.
The Archibald Prize, one of Australia’s most prestigious art award, is given to the best portrait painting. The 2016 winner is Louise Hearman’s ‘Barry’, a portrait painting of entertainer Barry Humphries.
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. Wynne’s 2016 winner is Ken Family Collaborative’s ‘Seven sister’, and Sulman’s 2016 winner is Esther Stewart’s ‘Flatland dreaming’.
The trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne, while senior painter Judy Watson was invited to judge the Sulman this year.
