Over the past 42 years the Annual Art Show has been a highlight of The King’s School’s event calendar. This year, again due to COVID restrictions, we will be hosting a modified event. However, The King’s School Art Prize will remain a lead feature of the event.
Now in its 27th year, The King’s School Art Prize has been awarded to some of Australia's leading contemporary artists.
The King’s Art Prize is a $20,000 acquisitive award presented to the artist judged the best contemporary artwork, created by an artist resident in Australia and represented by a commercial gallery, supporting both the artists and the fine arts industry. Entry is by invitation only and the finalists are selected by an appointed Art Prize panel. This year’s theme reflects ‘connectivity’.
The 2021 guest judge is Kon Gouriotis OAM, Editor of Artist Profile Magazine.
The King’s Art Prize, over the past 27 years, has proudly boasted inclusion of such artists as: Aida Tomescu, Lyndal Brown and Charles Green, John Olsen, Jason Benjamin, Jacquie Stockdale, Peter Churcher, Joanna Logue, Nicholas Harding, Martine Emdur, Ashley Frost, Rodney Pople, Ben Quilty, Nicholas Blowers, Geoffrey de Groen, Gloria Petyarre, Ross Laurie, Euan Macleod, Geoff Dyer, Jun Chen, Guy Maestri, John Bokor, David Frank, Peter Godwin, Bec Juniper, McLean Edwards and Pepai Jangala Carroll.
