Wyndham Art Gallery established the Wyndham Art Prize in 2015. It has become one of the largest prizes, in terms of the number of artists shortlisted for exhibition, in the country. From more than 300 entries, the exhibition will feature all shortlisted artists with works across a variety of mediums.  The 2022 will be judged by Maree Clarke, Andy Butler and Haley Miller Baker.

The winners will be announced at the opening on Thursday 2nd June. The cash prizes for 2022 are the Wyndham Art Prize of $15,000 non-acquisitive, and the Local Emerging Art Prize (LEAP) of $5,000 acquisitive.

To coincide with the Wyndham Art Prize exhibition opening, Wyndham Art Gallery is excited to launch DECADE 2011-2021, a retrospective book detailing the first 10 years of the gallery’s programming. Published by Black Inc Books and featuring artist interviews, essays and beautiful images, DECADE is a celebration of the growth of participation and engagement in the arts across Wyndham, in what we call the ‘Deep West’. DECADE 2011-2021 showcases some of the extraordinary art exhibited in this small contemporary gallery space which has grown its reputation far beyond the west. Come and see DECADE and reminisce or discover what has been before.

Join us on Thursday 2nd June to celebrate the Wyndham Art Prize of 2022 and the gallery’s past ten years of achievements.
