Traditionally, the Archibald Prize travels throughout New South Wales and one Victorian venue, but the Gallery of NSW decided this year to extend this prestigious, annual, portrait art competition into Cairns, which is growing in recognition as a major cultural destination in Australia.
The Archibald Prize 2020 collection will be on display until the 2nd of May.

I spoke to the Gallery Manager, Kelly Jaunzems about this exciting coup for Cairns.
