Meroogal Women’s Art Prize: entries now closed

 

The Meroogal Women’s Art Prize celebrates the achievements and creativity of female artists across New South Wales.

A house museum and garden located in Nowra, Meroogal is a special place. It was greatly cherished by its owners, the Thorburn and Macgregor families, from February 1896 until its purchase by Sydney Living Museums in 1985. The prize pays tribute to the four generations of women who lived at the property for almost 100 years.

The Meroogal Women’s Art Prize, now in its 16th year, was held annually from 1998–2011. In 2014 we re-launched the prize and brought the exhibition into the house and grounds, which is where selected works will again be displayed this year.

I encourage all female artists who are residents of NSW to enter. We are looking for works that explore Meroogal’s sense of place and reflect perhaps the personal stories of the people who lived at the property or the rich and diverse collection of treasures that remain in situ. 

Joanna Nicholas, Curator

A recent visitor to the Museums Discovery Centre saw SLM's immense carved, timber window cornice from Drummoyne House and was immediately transported back to her time living in the house.
