Congratulations to Natasha Bieniek who is a finalist in both the Archibald and the Wynne Prize – Australia’s most prestigious portrait and landscape prizes!
The Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes is an annual exhibition presenting the finalists at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney.
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.
