The Archibald Prize and some other art.

This is just one of the portraits from the Archibald Prize that were displayed in the exhibition held at the Gippsland Art Gallery as part of the regional tour of the portraits. You can see the winner and the finalists Here.

The exhibition was terrific and well worth the visit.  Such a variety of portraits and well conducted control of the viewing public as a limited number were allowed to browse for an allocated period of time thus adhering to COVID protocols.

If you are interested there is an excellent set of three programs  called Finding the Archibalds, hosted by Rachel Griffiths.  You can find that on ABC iView.

We had time to view some other aspects of the gallery, not included in the Archibald section and I was pleased to see some more of Annemieke Mein’s work.  I have previously done a post about her bronzed works.

This one I particularly loved as it was constructed featuring labels from clothing.

  1. Thank you for sharing the link. Great exhibition. Such a wide variety of portraits. Have to have a longer browse with a cuppa.

      it was so good that they had put the portraits on a regional tour to let more of the country folk get the chance to see what is usually only in Sydney.
