Congratulations to Melissa Egan and Wendy Sharpe whose 2015 Archibald entries have been selected to hang in the Salon des Refuses.

Each year guest selectors at the S. H. Irvin Gallery go behind the scenes of the Art Gallery of New South Wales Archibald Prize to select the artworks.

The Salon has an excellent reputation and the criteria for works selected are quality, diversity, humour and experimentation and cover themes such as contemporary art practices, different approaches to portraiture and artist’s responses to the landscape.

Melissa’s artwork ‘Self portrait, artist and muse (Melissa Egan and Edmund Theermine)’ and Wendy’s workSelf portrait with puppet (Wendy Sharpe)’ have been selected for this prestigous exhibition and will hang at the Salon des Refuses from 18 July – 13 September.
