The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, Australia’s pre-eminent award for small sculpture presented by Woollahra Council, has announced 56 finalists for the 20th annual Prize and exhibition.
The 2020 finalist works, by artists from Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Italy, were selected from a record 844 entries and will be presented for the first time in Woollahra Council’s new purpose-built gallery space, as its inaugural exhibition opening in early 2021.
The sculptures – each measuring up to 80cm in any dimension – were selected by a judging panel comprised of Director Curatorial and Digital, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia Dr Lara Strongman, Art Historian/Curator and Industrial Archaeologist Joanna Capon OAM and celebrated artist and fashion designer Jenny Kee AO.
The exhibition will be on view, free to the public, at the Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf in Double Bay. To mark the 20th anniversary there will be an increased total prize pool of $29,000 across four categories. The Prize categories are the main Acquisitive award of $25,000; a Special Commendation award of $2,000; the Viewers’ Choice award of $1,000; and the Mayor's Award of $1,000.
Woollahra Mayor, Councillor Susan Wynne said, “We are thrilled to have received a record number of entries this year as we mark the 20th edition of this celebrated prize.
“To see such an enthusiastic response to the Prize, during such a difficult year only strengthens our commitment to cultural development and reinforces the decision we have made to open our first art gallery next year – Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf.
“The quality and diversity of the 2020 Finalist works are outstanding, and we cannot wait to welcome visitors into the new gallery with an exhibition that has something for everyone.”
