Sydney Living Museums is excited to announce that entries are now open for the 2018 Meroogal Women’s Art Prize, with a prize pool of over $10,000 plus a Bundanon Trust artist-in-residence scholarship and a solo exhibition opportunity at Shoalhaven Regional Gallery

Female artists from across NSW are invited to submit works, in any medium, that respond to Meroogal and its sense of place. Selected artworks will be displayed 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.

Winners and finalists will be exhibited at Meroogal from September 2018 to March 2019.
