The Archibald Prize 2023 is on its regional tour and will spend over a month in the Gallery, from 15 March to 28 April 2024. One of the country’s most coveted portraiture competitions features over 50 portraits of people from all walks of life.

Only 57 out of 949 entries were selected for this year’s Prize, with women (30) making up the majority compared to men (27) for the first time in the Prize’s history. Aboriginal artists hit a new record across three competitions (Archibald, Wynne, and Sulman), with 101 entries, and 38 made it to the finalists.

On Friday, 5 April, the second leg of the ‘Archibald Art Up Late’ will feature tours, activities, and music from The Turnbull Brothers and Mayor of the Hawkesbury City Council, Clr Sarah McMahon, at the Sitter’s Lounge.

The Hawkesbury Regional Gallery is at the Deerubbin Centre, located at 300 George Street, Windsor.
