Exploring the natural world through artistic creativity

The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize is a unique opportunity for talented artists to immerse themselves in the wonders of science. 

We challenge artists to use skills in their chosen media to interpret the natural world and contribute to the great environmental debates facing our planet.

Now in its eleventh year, the Waterhouse is a valuable fixture in the Australian art world and offers artists a platform to showcase their skills, and make a statement about the scientific issues affecting us today. 

All artworks are for sale through the Museum Shop
