Finalists’ works will go on display at Bendigo Art Gallery on September 14th and the winner announced on September 19th, 2019.

Held every two years, the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize offers audiences the opportunity to see some of the most exciting, new contemporary paintings from a wide cross-section of emerging and leading Australian artists. Previous winners include Stieg Persson, Dale Frank, Stephen Bush, Jan Nelson, Tim Johnson, Chris Bond, Guan Wei and Margaret Loy Pula. As an acquisitive prize, the winning work joins the Bendigo Art Gallery’s permanent collection.

The prize was initiated by Mr Allen Guy CBE (1917-2007) to honour his brother Arthur Guy (1914-1945) whose life was tragically cut short whilst in service in New Guinea. Arthur was educated at Camp Hill State School in Bendigo and then at Ballarat Grammar School.

“The 2019 finalist pool offers an exciting mix of established and emerging artists, with varying interests - abstraction, portraiture and still life traditions are all represented,” said Bendigo Art Gallery Director Jessica Bridgfoot.

“The AGMPP is also an important survey of contemporary Australian panting, and we thank the Guy family for continuing this generous and important prize,” she said.
