Meroogal Women’s Art Prize is back
Entries are now closed.
In 2014 the Meroogal Women’s Art Prize is back. We are relaunching the prize, held every year from 1998 to 2011, and bringing the exhibition to the house. Selected entries to this year’s Arts Prize will be exhibited in the house, garden and grounds of historic Meroogal in Nowra.
Artists are invited to create works in any medium that respond to Meroogal and its sense of place. The works might throw new light on the personal stories of the people who lived there and/or on the rich collection of treasures within the house and grounds.
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 18 years or over whose principal residence is in NSW. Up to two entries per person are allowed. The entry fee for one artwork is $30, for two artworks, $55.
- 1st prize: $6000 and Bundanon Trust artist-in-residency scholarship

Armistice Day: ‘the bells are ringing’Friday 9 November 2018
In early November 1918, Australians knew that the end of World War I was imminent and that an armistice was about to be signed between Germany and the Allies. After some false reports and premature peace rejoicings, the armistice was finally signed in France at 5am on Monday 11 November and came into effect at 11am Paris time. Reverend Tom Thorburn, Presbyterian minister, described how events unfolded in a letter written a few days later to his sister Tot Thorburn at Meroogal in Nowra.
