Celebrate the creativity in the legal profession at the Just Art exhibition which showcases works created by those who share a motivation for justice. As part of the Just Art competition, artists have unique opportunity to participate in justice by creating artworks and compositions that highlight experiences or reflections upon the concept of justice and our justice system. The competition is open not just to solicitors and law students but anyone who has a passion for justice and the rule of law. This is the second year the competition is running and raises money and awareness for the Law Society of NSW President’s charity for 2018 The Butterfly Foundation, the national organisation that supports people with eating disorders. Artworks displayed at the exhibition will be available to purchase, with a portion of funds going to The Butterfly Foundation.
Just Art gives the legal community an opportunity to reflect critically on the strengths and vulnerabilities of the justice system through art and creativity.

Each year our panel is invited to go behind the scenes of the judging process for the annual Archibald Prize for portraiture and Wynne Prize for landscape painting and figure sculpture to select an exhibition from the hundreds of works entered in both prizes but not chosen for the official award exhibition. The criteria for works selected in the ‘Salon’ are quality, diversity, humour and innovation. Visitors can vote in the Holding Redlich People’s Choice Award.

June 9 to July 1 The Three Brothers – contemporary works by Warlimpirrnga, Walala and Thomas Tjapaltjarri and their family led a completely nomadic life until they emerged from the desert in Kiwirrkurra in 1984. Members of the lost tribe, the three brothers have continued to stun the world when walking out of the desert those many years ago. For example, in their first three years, Warlimpirrnga’s art was featured in an exhibition in Melbourne. While the patterns they each paint can appear geometric and even hypnotic to the eye, the meaning behind the works are multilayered and often not able to be divulged to the uninitiated.
