We can’t wait to see the works not selected this year!
Real Refuses has become firmly established as part of the “Archibald Season”. Not everyone can win an Archibald but here everyone can exhibit along side their peers.
While it is an exhibition of rejected artwork, it is much more than that. It is about giving a fair go to all the artists involved in Australia’s largest art events. For the past 24 years TAP Gallery has hosted the Real Refuses where we guarantee to hang all work not shortlisted for the Archibald.
In the past an extraordinary range of subjects from musicians, actors, politicians including:-
Mayor of Willoughby
Former Prime Minister John Howard
Professor Bruce James Brew
Jaiwei, (a winner of the Sulman.)
You’ll find past winners of Australia’s biggest art prizes here as well!
If we encourage each other every year to enter, one of us will get hung at some time in our artistic career.
