44th Muswellbrook Art Prize
The Muswellbrook Art Prize began in 1958 as the Festival of the Valley Art Prize with the winning painting Death
of Voss by Tom Gleghorn becoming the inaugural work in what has grown to become an excellent collection of modern and contemporary Australian painting, works on paper and ceramics from the post-war period of the 20th century and now the first two decades of the 21st century. The Muswellbrook Art Prize selects only the very best
works to compete in the final adjudication and be displayed in the exhibition. Many of the winning artists have
had long and successful careers and many are numbered among the most significant in Australia’s creative life.
With a prize pool of $70,000 the 44th Muswellbrook Art Prize offers artists from across Australia the opportunity to vie for three awards in the mediums of painting with prize money of $50,000, work on paper with prize money of $10,000 and ceramics also with prize money of $10,000.
