Paramor Art Prize: Art + Innovation 2015
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is proud to announce its inaugural Art prize, the Paramor Prize:
Art + Innovation 2015.
The Paramor Prize: Art + Innovation is set to be an annual acquisitive prize of $20,000. A $5,000
Mayoral Award will be issued to the artwork that best addresses the guiding principles
Liverpool City Council and a $1,000 People’s Choice Award will be issued to the artwork voted
most popular.
Submitted artworks must address ideas about innovation and thinking about the future,
encouraging new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us.
 A panel of
guest judges will select the winners and a curated selection of works will be exhibited at Casula
Powerhouse Arts Centre from 30 January to 23 March 2015.
The prize is launched in memory of Wendy Paramor, commemorating the 40th anniversary since
the passing of one of Australia’s most celebrated female modern artists for her innovative and

forward thinking artistic practice. Upon her death at age 37, local Liverpool resident Paramor
bequeathed a large collection of her works to Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and the Liverpool
City Art, Heritage and Local Studies Collection.
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Director Kiersten Fishburn said the new prize was an opportunity to celebrate the talents of emerging and established artists while honouring the contribution of

Wendy Paramor to the arts.
“Paramor was a woman ahead of her time; her work is still admired by staff and visitors and can
be found on walls across the country. What better way to honour her contribution than to
dedicate our prize to her legacy,” said Ms Fishburn.
Liverpool City Mayor, Ned Mannoun, said the prize was an opportunity for the city to showcase
its innovation and creativity on a national level whilst honouring the amazing contribution of one
of the city’s own.

“The optimism of Paramor’s artistic practice shows just what is possible in the South West region
of Sydney. Innovation is a guiding principle of Liverpool City Council and the Paramor Prize: Art +
Innovation provides an opportunity to develop new solutions and creative explorations of
challenges and opportunities in the rapidly growing South West Sydney region.
We are proud to call Paramor a local and I am sure that there are many more artists of her calibre
right here in Liverpool.”
Entries are open now until 5pm on 7th December, 2014. For full prize and exhibitions details visit or phone 9821 1121.
