Preparing for the Who’s who portrait prize—a virtual exhibition

22 August to 27 September

Introduce students to exploring, interpreting and creating portraiture.

This annual exhibition of the work of local students honours Jules Francois Archibald, after whom the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ famous portrait prize is named, and his very special connection to Geelong as his birthplace.
