Kilgour Art Prize 2019
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Monday and Friday, repeating until April 28, 2019
Since 2006, the Kilgour Prize has encouraged innovation and fresh thinking around the genres of portrait and figurative painting. This year, the prize enters its ninth year, and with it comes a certain gravitas – a respectability – which is difficult to achieve in the competitive art fair market.
Today, Newcastle Art Gallery’s Kilgour Prize, which awards $50,000 to an outstanding contemporary artwork, is regarded as one of Australia’s major art prizes.
Entries are now open for the 2019 Kilgour Art Prize, closing 28 April 2019
