This year there were more than 2100 paintings submitted in the Young Archie competition. From these entries this year’s judge, artist Ramesh Nithiyendran, selected 40 paintings and another 20 were given honourable mentions.
The ten finalists from each age category are displayed at the Art Gallery of NSW until 26 September 2021 and the honourable mentions at the SH Ervin Gallery.
Below are Ben Apfelbaum’s pics of some of the paintings on display at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
As a result of the recent Covid19 outbreak, Greater Sydney is in lockdown for, at the least, a two week period. The Art Gallery Of New South Wales is closed for the duration of the lockdown. Hopefully the current outbreak will be contained and the Gallery will soon be able to open its doors again.
