The prestigious Black Swan Prize for Portraiture is Australia’s third richest portrait prize, attracting thousands of visitors each year to see Australia’s finest portraiture works on display.

To celebrate the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture ten-year anniversary, the forty adult finalist portraiture works will be on display as part of Portraiture Month.

Be fascinated by the variety of portraits on display and get the opportunity to participate in workshops, artist floor talks and guided tours that celebrate the art of portraiture.

The annual national prize has quickly become an anticipated event in WA's cultural calendar, creating a showcase of both emerging and established artists across a variety of venues.
