Glen-Archies-2015-PosterSmThis year celebrates the 5th Glen Archies Portrait Prize which is a non-acquisitive exhibition and held every two years.

The Gala Opening and presentation of prizes will be at

4pm  Saturday 23rd of May

The judge for this year’s event is former Director of the New England Regional Art Museum and now Regional Arts Development Officer for Arts North West, Ms Caroline Downer.


The entry fee for the opening will be $5 which includes refreshments, live entertainment and the chance to see a familiar face or two immortalised in an artwork. 

Many of the works will be for sale and this will be an excellent opportunity to purchase some unique works by our regional artists. 

2015 is also the Glen Innes Art Gallery’s 10th anniversary, over the last ten years volunteers have put together around 9 exhibitions each year; helped display the Waste into Art Competition; acted as stewards for the annual Glen Innes Show; arranged and hosted numerous art workshops and maintain the Glen Innes Fine Arts Collection of acquired art works that are on public display around Glen Innes.


Without the dedication of previous committees and loyal volunteers this would not have been possible, so a huge thanks must go to all who have been involved over the years. The Glen Archies will be the occasion to celebrate the gallery’s decade of success.



The Glen Innes Art Gallery would like to extend sincere thanks and appreciation to the very generous sponsors for the 2015 Glen Innes Archies Portrait Prize and look forward to acknowledging their contributions on the opening night.



The 2015 Sponsors are:

New England Community Mutual, Glen Innes Severn Council, Eastmon Digital, Crofters Cottage Café, Glen Innes Arts Council, Glen Innes and District Services Club, Wright Robertson Winery and the Glen Innes Art Gallery.
