GAGPROJECTS congratulates Christian Lock as a finalist in the 2017 Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize.
Designed to attract some of Australia’s finest contemporary artists and high calibre works, the inaugural Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize and exhibition was first held in 2003 at Bendigo Art Gallery. The most outstanding work as judged by the selection panel is awarded an acquisitive cash prize of $50,000. The Prize was initiated by Mr Allen Guy C.B.E (1917-2007) in honour of his brother Arthur Guy (1914-1945).
Works from the shortlisted artists will be on display at Bendigo Art Gallery in the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize exhibition from 17 June – 20 August 2017.  The 2017 winner will be announced at the exhibition’s opening on Friday 16 June 2017.
