The 2018 Bald Archy Prize exhibition will be on show at Corowa Art Space from Friday 12 October to Saturday 3 November 2018.
Corowa Art Space has hosted the Bald Archy Prize touring exhibition annually since 2014 and established a loyal following of supporters. This year’s exhibition is expected to attract more than 1500 visitors to Corowa to see the outstanding, Australia wide, touring exhibition which is now in its 25th year.
The 2018 winner of the Bald Archy Prize is a portrait of Ahn Do called “Anh Can Do” by James Brennan. Brennan, who has taken out the prize on four occasions, said he chose Ahn Do as his subject for the prize because he admires him. Brennan had seen Ahn Do’s television series and his works in the Archibald Prize and thought he would make a good subject. The work draws on the famous Norman Rockwell self-portrait in which the American artist paints his own portrait using his reflection in a mirror.
The exhibition begins in Canberra before going on tour throughout Eastern Australia and includes the Corowa Art Space!
Open daily 10am - 4pm.
