2024 Ludlow Art Prize

After gaining positive feedback on last years Ludlow Art Prize from both artists and attendees, the decision has been made to open entries up to all of Western Australia for 2024.

To cater for the anticipated increase in entries we have plans to expand the exhibition so it will be displayed not only in the heritage listed Ludlow Gallery, but also in the neighbouring heritage building called the Store. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Ludlow Tuart Forest!
