Few annual exhibitions have so well captured the Australian and wider world's attention so well as the Archibald Prize. Held each year since 1921 the event offers a great insight, not only into our local art scene, but also on the wider story of the nation.

Each year, the figures may vary and the portraits of course change, but just like looking upon a mountain range or ocean break day-by-day we regularly find new features and elements to discern in these portraits, of what the works say about us and the wider story of Australia.

This year the winning pieces shall be showcased in Ballarat, within a beautiful regional art gallery that does so much to showcase Victoria. From Bruno Jean Grasswill's depiction of Michael Caton to Julian Meagher's of Daniel Johns - there will be figures like this recognised and appreciated in a new light - but also lesser known individuals upon whom the prize does such a service in showcasing their story.

The Archibald Prize 2015 will feature in Ballarat from October 2nd to November 15 and is very much worth a visit.
