Archibald, Wynne and Sul­mann Prizes Au­di­ences have the chance to view art­works by this year’s fi­nal­ists in each of Aus­tralia’s three most pres­ti­gious art awards — the Archibald, Wynne and Sul­man prizes. Fi­nal­ists in the Young Archie com­pe­ti­tion — which re­wards bud­ding artists aged 5-18 years — will also be on dis­play. Art Gallery of NSW, Art Gallery Road, Syd­ney. Opens to­day. Tick­ets: $8-$18. Book­ings: 136 246 or on­line. Un­til Oc­to­ber 22. Sea Gar­den The whim­si­cal se­ries of oil paint­ings by Ju­dith Van Heeren in Sea Gar­den de­pict a con­flicted nexus be­tween the nat­u­ral world’s cap­ti­vat­ing magic and fragility, with par­tic­u­lar ref­er­ence to the Great Bar­rier Reef. Vel­vety land­scapes are pop­u­lated with sea gar­dens brim­ming with jewel-like or­gan­isms, yet they give way to white, bleak hori­zons — a timely re­minder of the Great Bar­rier Reef’s mor­tal­ity, fu­elled by coral bleaching and pol­lu­tion.
