Archibald Prize 15

30 April – 5 June 2016

The Archibald Prize, held annually at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, is a much- anticipated highlight in Australia’s visual arts calendar. First awarded in 1921, it has become one of this country’s most coveted and prestigious awards, drawing record-breaking interest and crowds to the exhibition of finalists. The regional tour brings the inevitably controversial yet hugely popular exhibition to Lake Macquarie with Hunter-based artist Nigel Milsom as the celebrated winner in 2015.

The Archibald Prize 2015 is an Art Gallery of New South Wales touring exhibition.

CLICK: Schools in Focus

23 April – 5 June 2016

CLICK is a relatively recent gallery initiative launched to showcase secondary school photographic projects from across the Hunter and Central Coast regions. Each year, exhibitions of work are selected and proudly displayed in the education room. This is the fifth exhibition in the series and will feature portraiture by selected students from Lake Munmorah High School.

A gallery project coordinated by Jo Davies and Rob Cleworth.
