2018 Paul Guest Prize

30 Jun 2018 - 9 Sep 2018

The Paul Guest Prize is a non-acquisitive cash prize of $15,000 which is held biennially, highlighting contemporary drawing practice in Australia. The Prize was initiated by former Family Court Judge and Olympic rower, the Honourable Paul Guest QC and encourages artists from across Australia to engage with the important medium of drawing in contemporary art practice.

‘My abiding and passionate interest in art commenced several decades ago and from those early beginnings I was introduced to contemporary art in a holistic way which ran parallel to my professional career. I appreciate that the journey for artists is, at times, a demanding and tortuous one and I trust that in some small way I have and will continue to assist them to achieve their full potential.’ The Honourable Paul M Guest, QC

This exhibition will feature the artworks of all finalists.

Previous winners include Tom Nicholson; Heather B Swann; Peter Grziwotz and Belinda Fox .
