Congratulations to Kathrin Longhurst, who has been selected as a finalist in the 2017 prize exhibition for her portrait of Fashion icon Alex Perry and his sunglasses.
Founded by Doug & Greta Moran and family in 1988, the DMNPP is an annual Australian portrait prize supporting Australian artists and the wider arts community by holding the free annual Moran Prizes exhibition, now at Juniper Hall Paddington, displaying the top 30 works selected by nominated judges each year.
Currently with an annual first prize of one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000), the Prize is an important part of Australia’s Arts calendar. The Prize is acquisitive and the winning portrait immediately becomes the property of the Moran Arts Foundation, to be exhibited permanently as part of the Moran Arts Foundation Collection.
Gallery One artists Cynthia Breusch, and Andrew Baines were selected as semi-finalists in this prestigious exhibition. Please go to links to view works by all artists currently available for purchase.
