If you love art and a good laugh, head to the Baldy Archy Prize, which is currently on show at the Victoria Hotel. The Baldy Archie is celebrating its 25th year. It was started in 1994 by Peter Batey OAM, as part of a Coolac Festival of Fun.

Created as a joke, this exhibition has become iconic on the Australian art calendar featuring comic and satirical images of well-known Australians.

This year's parody of the Archibald Prize consists of 45 finalists all motivated by the Australian larrikin sense of humour. The winning painting was James Brennan's portrait of artist and comedian Anh Do.

Opened daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm, admission cost for adults is $5.00.

Judged by Maude, a sulphur-crested cockatoo is the judge of this international art competition.

Visit the Victoria Hotel to view the hilarious Bald Archy Prize exhibition until 7 October.
