Calling all young artists! As part of the 2020 Archibald Prize exhibition coming to Penrith Regional Gallery November 20 to January 9, 2022, the Gallery will host the Young Archie Penrith Regional Gallery.

The exhibition will comprise portraits created by young people from the Penrith and Blue Mountains regions, aged 5 - 18 years.

This is an exciting opportunity for young people to celebrate their art skills while also honouring that special someone in their life.

From now until November 7, young artists are invited to submit a portrait of someone who is special to them and plays a significant role in their life.

Artworks can be posted to the following address: Penrith Regional Gallery, Home of The Lewers Bequest, PO Box 2, Penrith, NSW, 2751

Artworks can also be dropped off at the Gallery on specific dates to be announced soon.
