works not selected for the
Archibald Wynne & Sulman Prizes
at the Art Gallery of NSW 10-22 April

Saturday 14th April marks the 16th Anniversary of Australia’s largest Art “non” Event –
Real Refuses – where artists not selected for the ARCHIBALD, WYNNE, SULMAN, and
DOUG MORAN Art Prizes exhibit their work at TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst to win the popular
“People’s Choice Award”, selected by the public on the night.

Real Refuses has become firmly established as part of the “Archibald Season”.
While it is an exhibition of rejected artwork, it is much more than that…
It is about giving a fair go to all the artists involved in Australia’s largest art events.

Not everyone can win an Archibald but here everyone can exhibit along side their peers.
(You’ll find past winners of Australia’s biggest art prizes here as well!)
In the past an extraordinary range of subjects from the NSW Premier, Mayor of Willoughby,
Anthony Mundeen, Tony Abbott, Leo Sawyer, the then Prime Minister John Howard,  Madame Lash,
Elizabeth Cummings, Professor Bruce James Brew, and Jaiwei, a winner of the Sulman.

TAP GALLERY, Level 1, 278 Palmer Street, Darlinghurst
GALA PRESENTATION NIGHT: Saturday 14th April 2006, 5-8pm
(includes the “People’s Choice Award”)
RUNS TO: Sunday 21 April, with a high tea at 3pm for all the exhibiting artists. This is the last day of the show.
On view 12-6pm Daily
CONTACT: Lesley Dimmick, TAP GALLERY on 02 9361 0440.
