Sixty unique artworks focusing on sustainability and the environment have been shortlisted in Hornsby Shire Council’s Remagine Art Prize 2022.
The finalist works of Digital Art, Sculpture, Mixed Media, Ceramics, Painting, Drawings and Prints will be on exhibition at Wallarobba Arts and Cultural Centre, Hornsby from 27 May to 12 June.
Hosted by Hornsby Shire Council in partnership with the Hornsby Art Society, the annual Remagine Art Prize challenges artists to create works in response to the crisis we are all facing, with waste and over-consumption. The theme for this year’s prize was ‘Planet Earth: The future is Circular’, shining a light on the reduction of earth’s raw materials and the need to reuse these finite and precious natural resources.
Hornsby Shire Mayor, Philip Ruddock said, “I would like to congratulate all the finalists for their inspiring and thought-provoking artworks, and their passion for sustainability and the environment. Hornsby Shire Council is committed to preserving our beautiful natural environment for future generations and this year’s theme emphasises how we all can do our part to reduce waste and live more sustainably.”
This year’s judges are artists Sophie Cape, Alan Jones and designer/illustrator/sculptor Paul Littrich. A total of $11,000 prize money is on offer. Winners will be announced at an award ceremony on Friday 27 May with special guest Professor Veena Sahajwalla, 2022 NSW Australian of the Year.
