‘A Process of Careful Contemplation’ by Tish Linehan. 2016 ArtWorld Portrait Prize Winner

Local artists, whether they are absolute beginners, emerging or professional, are invited to submit their artwork to a portrait exhibition in Norman Park.

The second annual ArtWorld Studio Gallery Portrait Prize Exhibition is seeking submissions of portrait artworks using any medium.

ArtWorld owner Astrid La Fleur says there are not many rules for the competition and she is looking forward to showcasing a diverse range of local artworks.

“I love seeing how people can interpret portraits in such different ways,” Astrid says.

“The exhibition is very welcoming of all mediums – it might be sculpture or it might be printmaking, it’s very flexible as to how artists want to tackle the subject.”

The works can portray humans or animals – living or past.

The deadline to submit your work is midnight, Monday 19th June. Successful submissions will then be notified and work is to be delivered by Wednesday 28th June.

The Opening Night is Saturday 15th July, 6-8pm and it will be officially opened by Member for Bulimba Di Farmer.

The prize is $300 and an invitation to have a solo exhibition with ArtWorld in 2018. There will also be runner up and highly commended certificates given. Artists can submit up to 4 pieces and the entry cost is $30 per submission.

The exhibition provides an opportunity for local artists to connect with the wider Brisbane art community.

ArtWorld Studio Gallery is at 28 Bodalla St, Norman Park. It runs art workshops and classes and hosts regular exhibitions.

So whether or not you want to paint your favourite celebrity or sketch your best friend, you can find more information and enter your work at and visit the ArtWorld Facebook page.
