Female artists from across NSW are invited to submit works, in any medium, that respond to the historic house of Meroogal, its former occupants, and its meaning within broader historical and contemporary contexts. Selected artworks will be displayed and photographed throughout the property, throwing new light on the personal stories of the people who once lived there, and the rich collection of objects that are still contained within the house.
The Meroogal Women’s Art Prize is a regional, non-acquisitive competition and exhibition. It is open to a work in any medium made by a woman aged 18 years or over who is a resident of NSW. This year, Sydney Living Museums is waiving the artist entry fee.
Entries close at 4pm on Tuesday 2 August 2022.
Artworks selected for display in the exhibition will be on display to the public from Saturday 17 September 2022 to Saturday 22 April 2023.
