2024 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize Exhibition


From $0.00
Art and science blend in the 2024 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize exhibition.

Since 2002, the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize has called for established and emerging artists to turn their gaze to the natural world. Named after the South Australian Museum’s first curator, Frederick George Waterhouse, this biennial prize recognises the long-running interplay between scientific research and the creative arts, from the illustrators and sculptors who help to describe and depict specimens, to contemporary artists who invite us to think about our environment and our impact on the natural world.

From epic celestial canvases to salt-and-silk textile works, the shortlist for the 2024 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize brings together a rich and diverse survey of works that map the intersection of nature, science, and art.

Winners will be announced on 11 April ahead of the public opening of a major exhibition showcasing all shortlisted finalists running until 10 June.

A $5,000 People’s Choice Prize sponsored by the K&S Langley Fund will also be awarded by public vote at the exhibition’s conclusion.
