History of the Waverley Art Prize

The Waverley Art Prize has been running since 1986 and is a local painting prize. The exhibition is usually held in Waverley Woollahra Art School during the July school holidays each year, but takes place online in 2021. The Waverley Art Prize is very much aimed at the local community and early to mid-career artists. The Open Prize and Mayor's Prize winning works are acquired in the Waverley Council Collection. The funds raised through the art prize support Waverley Woollahra Art School and help them sustain their role as the longest running artist run initiative in Waverley. This year is the 35th anniversary of the Waverley Art Prize.

The Waverley Art Prize is proudly presented in partnership with the Waverley Woollahra Art School.
