archibalds on tour

Michael Vale - Night of the wolverine,
 a portrait of Dave Graney and Clare Moore.
Last weekend saw the official opening of the Archibald Prize 2012 at Tarrawarra Museum of Art.
It was a great occasion, opened by John Wood - Yarra Valley local, whose portrait (painted by Raelene Sharp) took out the Packing Room Prize this year.

The room was abuzz with much conjecture about the 41 portraits selected as finalists for 2012.

It was terrific to meet Yarra Ranges locals Dave Graney and Clare Moore, subject matter for Michael Vale's portrait.
Luke Cornish - Father Bob.
Father Bob Maguire was delightful, it was wonderful to meet him and winning artist, Tim Storrier, was very generous with his time.

The exhibition  is well worth a visit and runs till 8 July, open Tuesday – Sunday, 9.30am to 5pm (Closed Mondays).
