Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize : Finalists

Past Prizes - 2020

Virtual Tour of Exhibition

Congratulations to our 2020 Winners

The 2020 Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize Professional Artist Prize of $35,000 has been won by Vicki Cullinan for her acrylic on linen artwork, ‘Munga Ilkari (The Night Sky)’, “a cosmic, ‘big picture’ view of the night sky, like the night sky itself, wondrous. An expansive transcendent work it takes us out way beyond the frame to consider the cosmos and our tiny human role within it”. 

Danielle Guyot has won the Emerging Artist’s Prize of $5,000 for her sculpture made from foam cups, ‘Watagan Balga – Relic from a Forgotten World’, “an exquisitely crafted sculpture of a grass tree made from polystyrene foam cups. This is transformation of materials big time.- a relic specimen of the natural world in Danielle’s words becomes a ‘ghost of itself’.”

The Indigenous Emerging Artist Prize of $5,000 has been won by Lynette Lewis for her acrylic on canvas artwork, ‘Tali Womikata’, “an exquisitely mesmerising work of great beauty giving us an almost physical experience of the movement of wind over sands. Like water itself the tiny dots of this painting recreates the fluid dynamics of movement of wind and water.”
