In the morning my bestie and I will pack up the new car (7 seats thank you very much) with the kids and the prams and the snacks and the kitchen sink before heading off to the Art Gallery Of NSW. The Archibald closes on Sunday and I couldn't bear (is that the wrong bear?) missing it, not when Quilty is the winner. So off we will totter for a quick look around and maybe lunch in Hyde Park. I'm looking forward to seeing the finalists and this work from previous winner Del Kathryn Barton.
Barton, Del Kathryn
- Mother (a portrait of Cate)
- watercolour, gouache, acrylic and pen on polyester canvas
Have you seen the Archibald yet? What was the winning work for you?
