Portrait Artists Australia

Jan Williamson
Nancy Kunoth Petyarr

On view through 19 September 2014

Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 10.00am-2.00pm

The Embassy of Australia and Portrait Artists Australia present a selected exhibition of 23 Australian portraits by member artists. The exhibition includes a wide range of subjects and celebrates Australia’s rich cultural diversity. The selected paintings were winners or finalists in various Australian portrait prizes, including the Archibald Prize, Black Swan Prize for Portraiture and the Portia Geach Memorial Award. Collectively the works offer an insight into the diverse approaches to painting taken by these Australian painters and, through the depiction of subjects ranging from television personalities to intimate portraits of family members, reflect the faces of Australia across generations.
