Percival Portrait Painting Prize

Exhibition Dates: 27 April - 15 July 2018

The biennial Percival Portrait Painting Prize is North Queensland’s own portrait competition.

Having begun in 2007, The Percivals is an open competition for artists. While showcasing the outstanding and innovative work currently being produced by Australian artists, the competition has also given many emerging artists an opportunity to engage with portraiture and share their expressions of themselves and those close to them.
