ARCHIBALD HEADED FOR GOSFORD

Return of the Gosford Art Prize
THE 2019 Archibald Prize exhibition is headed for Gosford Regional Gallery as part of its winter/spring program.

The program will also see the return of the hotly contested Gosford Art Prize, which this year has been expanded to include an Aboriginal Art prize for the first time.
 
Central Coast Council Team Leader Art Galleries, Arts and Culture, Tim Braham, said the Gallery prided itself on securing prestigious exhibitions and has recently been ranked as TripAdvisor’s number one destination to visit in the southern area of the Coast, among 17 other local attractions.
 
“We are delighted to continue bringing fantastic exhibitions to the Central Coast and saving locals a trip to Sydney or Newcastle,” Mr Braham said.
 
“The most exciting exhibition in our new program is the 2019 Archibald Prize, choosing to return to the Gallery for just the third time in its 98 years of exhibition – telling us that the experience we offer here on the Central Coast is world-class, which is reflected in our recent TripAdvisor ranking of number one.
 
“The Gallery is also a platform for local artists to professionally display their works and we have some great local exhibitions including Short Stories by Miriam Cullen, PARADIGM/SHIFT by Natalie Verriest, Heads above water by Peter Baka and Tales of a modern Blackfulla by Garry Purchase.
 
Mayor Jane Smith said the Gallery was an important cultural and educational resource for both locals and visitors.
 
“Tourism is a significant industry on the Central Coast and the visitor economy makes a positive contribution to the community through building local pride, youth employment, and supporting local events and community infrastructure,” she said.
