Victoria Reichelt is a finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award, Australia’s most prestigious art prize for portraiture by women artists.
The Award was established by the will of the late Florence Kate Geach in memory of her sister, Portia Geach. The non-acquisitive award of $30,000 is awarded by the Trustee for the entry which is of the highest artistic merit, ‘…for the best portrait painted from life of some man or woman distinguished in Art, Letters, or the Sciences by any female artist resident in Australia during the twelve months preceding the close date for entries.’
The winner will be announced on 20 October and the work of all finalists will be on exhibition until 26 November 2017 at the National Trust S.H. Ervin Gallery, Sydney.
