The Walker & Hall Waiheke Art Award 2023 is proudly sponsored by Walker & Hall in association with the Waiheke Community Art Gallery. This is a National Award for two dimensional works in any medium and has a Prize of $10,000 as the Premier Award.

The selector and judge this year is Lonnie Hutchinson. 

Lonnie Hutchinson, Ngati kuri ki Ngāi Tahu, Samoan (Faleilili) and Celtic descent, was born in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and lives in Ōtautahi Christchurch.

Hutchinson is interested in the ideas associated with humanmade physical constructs or architectural monuments in the landscape and the relationships between people and these constructions within the physical and spiritual realm.


Hutchinson is highly regarded both for her contribution to the visual arts as an exhibiting artist and her often large-scale public artworks. Recent permanent public art works commissions include Aroha ki te Ora at the Britomart Precinct in Tāmaki Makaurau; Kahu Matarau and Pikihuia e te au, e te pō commissioned by the Ministry of Justice for the Justice and Emergency Services Precinct development in Ōtautahi; and Honoa ki te Hono Tawhiti for the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki redevelopment. Hutchinson is also sought after for her contribution to leadership roles. She is a founding member of Paemanu Ngāi Tahu Contemporary Visual Arts, and previous Chair and current board member for Tautai Pacific Arts Trust.

The finalists this year are: Susan Badcock, Kirsty Black, Caroline Burton, Cathy Carter, Matthew Carter, Jamie Chapman, Mike Crawshaw, Jo Dalgety, Rebecca Hawthorn, Amanda Hewlett, Cruz Jimenez, Judith Lawson, Agata Leszczynska, Maggie McGregor, Judith Milner, Deborah Moss, Vanessa Narby, Ashlee O'Hagan, Paul Radford, Daisy Saaiman, Annie Smits Sandano, Katie Trinkle Legge, Debbie Tubb, Uliai, Bridgitte Valentine - Quick, Michael Walker & Ellen Johansen, Amanda Wilkinson.
