The Bald Archy Prize 2017

10 February to 13 March

OPEN DAILY

Admission $8;  concession $6

Created as a spoof of that more serious competition, the Bald Archy Prize provides artists of all styles and standards, ranging from the hilarious to the bizarrely vulgar, with a genuine opportunity to create portrait paintings of humour, dark satire, light comedy or caricature.

Winning subjects over the years have included Kerry packer, Amanda Vanstone, Edmund Capon, Shane Warne, Dame Edna Everidge, John Howard and Pauline Hanson, Robbie and Gai Waterhouse, Rupert Murdoch, Jeff Kennett, Cardinal George Pell, Tony Abbott, Ian Thorpe and Bert Newton.

Known internationally as the only art competition in the world to be judged by a sulphur-crested cockatoo named Maude, the satirical side of the event has its basis in the irreverent, larrikin Australian comic comment, with great appeal to people from all walks of life.
