Wyndham Art Prize

Shortlisted artist exhibition

Wyndham’s annual art prize has become known for its scale, inclusivity, and contemporary nature. It attracts more than 300 entries including some of the best artists across Australia exhibiting alongside local and emerging artists.

All shortlisted entries are included in the Wyndham Art Prize exhibition which runs at Wyndham Art Gallery from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 7 August. Shortlisted works include sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles, photography, installation, sound digital, video and more.

We had a variety of fantastic entries last year. Past winners of the prize include Melbourne based stylist, writer, creative director, and artist Gideon Wilonja for his captivating photograph titled Soft and the Local Emerging Art Prize was awarded to local artist Xiang Li for her work The Werribee River Book. In 2022 we are pleased to have the prize judged by curator and artist Maree Clarke, artist Hayley Millar Baker, and curator, artistic director, and artist Andy Butler.

Be sure not to miss the exciting opening event, where the winners of the prize will be announced and the launch of Wyndham Art Gallery’s new book, DECADE 2011-2021.

Opening Thursday 2 June, 6.30pm–8.30pm at Wyndham Cultural Centre.
