Come visit the Petrie Terrace Gallery to view the finalists in the Queensland Figurative & the Young Artist Award from 28th July to 21st August 2022.
The Queensland Figurative has been held successfully every 2 years since 2014 and offers over $10,000 in prizes. With each passing year, the Queensland Figurative continues to gain traction with Queensland artists and art lovers alike. The unique brief calls for artists to create paintings that incorporate the human figure as an integral part of the composition.
The Young Artist Award (which was introduced in 2016), is continuing, in line with the society's commitment to encouraging and supporting young people.
