2015 Lysaght Watt Trust Art Award
Theme: Self Portrait
The Lysaght Watt Trust Art Award has been held every year at the Gallery since 2013.
The Award continues to attract entries from artists throughout New Zealand in both 2D & 3D media. A different theme keeps the competition interesting each year, along with a major prize of $3000 and several other sponsored prizes.
An esteemed member of the New Zealand Art community is invited each year to choose the winner, and a gala evening is held at the Gallery to announce the winners and open the exhibition.
