The Gallery is currently developing a COVID Safe plan for the exhibition and delivery of works. We will contact finalists in the coming weeks to confirm arrangements.

Congratulations to our finalists and thank you to all artists who have entered. While we don't have firm dates for the exhibition just yet, we expect to reopen with the Gosford Art Prize exhibition as soon as the health orders allow in the coming months. A new date for the announcement of prize winners will be set once our opening date is clear.
