National Works on Paper
The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery’s National Works on Paper (NWOP) was established in 1998 and incorporated the former Spring Festival of Drawing and Prints Acquisitive which began in 1973 and 1974.
With a long and rich history, NWOP attracts leading contemporary artists from across Australia working in the fields of drawing, printmaking, digital prints and paper sculpture. The next iteration of the prestigious NWOP acquisitive exhibition will be held at MPRG in Spring 2022, (4 September – 20 November 2022).
NWOP supports and promotes Australian artists working on or with paper. We are currently re-imagining the award in the hope of offering increased acquisitions and awards in 2022.
Recent winners of the National Works on Paper include Annika Romeyn, James Tylor & Laura Wills, Daniel O'Shane, Jess Johnson, Laith McGregor, Richard Lewer, Danie Mellor, Gareth Sansom, Paul Boston, Lisa Roet and eX de Medici.
