Time is running out


Hurry - time is running out for this wonderful display of Australian artists and their portraits. The Archibald Prize Exhibition 2018 will finish on September 9, 2018. This exhibition has become more and more popular each year and showcases the extraordinary talent of Australian artists and the stories of people portrayed by them. There are the winners, of course, but there is much more to this exhibition

Beyond the wonderful artwork of well-known people in the arts, media, and politics there are also portraits of lesser-known people. These may be people we have read about in the news or people that have made some contribution to society and their communities. Many of the portraits are also self-portraits.



What is fascinating about all the people portrayed are their stories. There are stories of hardship, personal tragedies and successes, stories of family, being on the outside, refugees, indigenous life and many more. It is these stories that bring the portraits truly to life. The stories very successfully represent a microcosm of the world we live in, with all its trials and tribulations, humour and challenges.

Adult tickets are $20 or $18 concession and if you are an ANZ customer, you are entitled to a 10% discount. Make sure you don't miss out on this wonderful art exhibition.
