Entries are open for the Meroogal Women’s Art Prize 2022 – now in its 19th year.

Women artists from across NSW are invited to submit works, in any medium, that respond to the historic house of Meroogal, and consider its place within broader historical and contemporary contexts. Artists can draw inspiration from the personal stories of the four generations of women who once lived there, and explore the rich collection of objects that are still contained within the house.
