Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prize winners and 1000 others party at the AGNSW
The Archibald Prize is Australia’s most high profile art prize with Tim Storrier taking it out in 2012. Imants Tillers won the Wynne Art Prize and Nigel Milsom was awarded the Sulman Prize.
The Art Gallery of NSW was alive with over 1000 guests, made up of politicians, patrons, VIPs, artists, AGNSW members and media, who rallied to applaud the finalists and eventual winners at the annual ‘Archy party’.
Live Jazz bands played on two levels of the gallery as accompaniment to the lively conversations amongst the enthusiastic crowd while they nibbled and sipped drinks. Presentations of the art prizes and speeches were expeditiously conducted with the incoming Director of the AGNSW, Dr Michael Brand introduced to guests.
Supporters of the AGNSW like to party and events there are always vibrant giving art lovers and practitioners of art the opportunity to gather together to celebrate at one of the largest art parties of the year. Further info on the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Art Prizes and where to view.
