Remagine Art Prize 2023

Remagine exhibition

Theme – 'Wasteland or Wonderland'

Remagine Art Prize has a focus on waste, sustainability and the environment. Each year it has a timely and thought-provoking theme.

Open to digital art stills, sculpture, mixed media, painting, photography, print making, ceramics and drawing. Artists were asked to submit works that relate to an element of this year’s theme ‘Wasteland or Wonderland’.

There was $11,000 in total prize money. Prizes included: Winner $5,000, Runner Up $3,000, Recycled/Reused Materials Award $1,000, Local Artist Award $1,000, Youth Award (16-21) $750 and People’s Choice Award $250.

Held in partnership with the Hornsby Art Society since 2009, Remagine Art Prize is dedicated to bringing awareness of environmental challenges such as waste and consumption.

Each day we all make decisions about how much waste we create. Will our future be a ‘wasteland’ or can we start to reimagine a better future, one where we protect the world’s finite natural resources. The extraction of resources, production, transport, consumption and disposal of new products directly impacts on our environment. Waste and over-consumption impacts all eco systems and biodiversity including native wildlife, aquatic species and birdlife.

The Remagine Art Prize exhibition was held from 18 May until 4 June 2023, at Wallarobba Arts and Cultural Centre, 25 Edgeworth David Avenue, Hornsby.
