Congratulations to Robyn Sweaney for being selected as a finalist in this year’s Salon des Refuses exhibition.
Established in 1992, the prestigious Salon des Refusés is the 'alternative' selection from hundreds of entries to the Archibald and Wynne Prizes. The criteria for works selected are quality, diversity, humour and experimentation, thematically spanning contemporary art practices, different approaches to portraiture and artist's responses to the landscape.
Sweaney's painting, along with the other selected artists’ works, will be on display from 12 May – 29 July at the S. H. Ervin Gallery, Sydney.
Robyn's portrait has seen been acquired by Tweed Regional Gallery.
