The Access Artybald Prize

Portraiture by western Sydney’s most exciting, diverse artists.

The Access Artybald Prize is coming to Blacktown!

A portrait painting competition and exhibition facilitated by Ability Options’ Front Up Studios, The Access Artybald Prize is a celebration of western Sydney’s most exciting, diverse artists.

Open to artists with diverse abilities who live, work or study in greater western Sydney, The Access Artybald Prize was first exhibited at Front Up Studios in May 2022, before travelling to Wollongong Art Gallery and landing at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre this September.

The Access Artybald Prize was created in conjunction with Archibald Prize at Art Gallery of NSW.
