Be inspired by beautiful works of art at the National Archives' spring exhibition: the 2022 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize.

The art prize was originally created to commemorate the birth of the South Australian Museum’s first curator, Frederick George Waterhouse.

Over the years the competition has become a much-loved fixture on the arts calendar, allowing artists and audiences to explore natural science through a range of creative outlets.

This travelling exhibition is developed by the South Australian Museum and offers the only opportunity to view the artworks outside of South Australia.

The exhibition is supported by the Government of South Australia and is sponsored by IAS Fine Art Logistics and Hill Smith Art Advisory. The People's Choice Dr Wendy Wickes Memoriam Prize is generously provided by her life's companion.
