The Archibald Prize 2014
Main Gallery: 22 November to 4 January 2015

First awarded in 1921, The Archibald Prize is Australia’s favourite art award, and one of its most prestigious. It is awarded annually to the best portrait, ‘preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics, painted by any artist resident in Australasia’ and has become a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists. Gosford Regional Gallery is proud to host the exhibition as one of the select few regional touring venues for 2014. Entry is free, donations are appreciated.

For information about school excursions and workshops, or to book a guided tour please contact Gallery Reception (02) 4325 0056 gallery@gosford.nsw.gov.au

Foyer Gallery: 22 November to 4 January 2015

With the rise of the digital age, many people feel a sense of loss at the demise of the printed book. Three local artists, Judith Price, Nicole de Mestre and Sherry McCourt, collaborate to each produce a chapter, or collection of artworks, to highlight their individual take on this issue.

Exchange: 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial
10 January to 22 March 2015
Main Gallery

For the 2nd Tamworth Textile Triennial, twenty-two artists have been selected from around Australia to explore themes around collaboration, interdisciplinary relationships and the cross pollination of ideas. In July 2013 all the artists were flown to Tamworth NSW to meet each other at the start of the brief. In questioning what collaboration can mean for their practice, the artists have engaged in a dynamic creative dialogue and have demonstrated to us how new work and meaning emerges from relationship and exchange. The exhibition Group Exchange presents the extraordinary work that has emerged from this enquiry.
