One of the most prestigious Art Awards for QLD artists

The Royal Queensland Art Society (RQAS) Biennial 2020 comes to Petrie Terrace Gallery from 8th September to 4th October 2020 and showcases two exciting exhibitions; the prestigious Queensland Figurative and the Young Artist Award.

Now in its 4th year, the Queensland Figurative is a non-acquisitive competition open to Queensland artists for 2D artworks in which the human figure is integrated into the composition. It is on show from 8th September to 4th October 2020 at the Petrie Terrace Gallery.

The Young Artist Award is an initiative of RQAS Brisbane and is open to all Queensland residents aged (17 and under) or (18-30). The award is designed to encourage and support young artists in the pursuit of excellence. This exhibition will feature paintings and drawings created and "Observed from Life". It is on show from 8th September to 4th October 2020 in the Petrie Terrace Studio Gallery.
