Meroogal Women’s Art Prize 2020

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Sydney Living Museums is proud to present the biennial Meroogal Women’s Art Prize exhibition, now in its 18th year. Inspired by our 2020 themes of community, connection and impact, we’re delighted to be celebrating the achievements and creativity of female artists across New South Wales. The prize pays tribute to the four generations of women from the Thorburn and Macgregor families who lived at Meroogal in Nowra for almost 100 years.

Artists were invited to create works that respond to Meroogal and its sense of place. In their selection of finalists from hundreds of entries, our judges looked for artworks that cast new light on the stories of the people who lived here, and the house’s rich and diverse collection of treasures.

The work of the 40 finalists will be exhibited in the historic house of Meroogal until 17 April 2021.

Visit the Sydney Living Museums website to see the full list of artists and to pre-book your tickets.

Because of limited capacity within the house museum, visitors are encouraged to pre-purchase timed session tickets online before their visit.
