Congratulations Catherine Abel for being one of the finalists for the 2019 Portia Geach Art Prize. The Portia Geach Memorial Award is Australia’s most prestigious art prize for portraiture by women artists. Best of luck to you, Catherine.
The Portia Geach Memorial Award is sometimes referred to as the female Archibald Prize. Just like any other art competition, artists are invited to submit their entry and then the judges/trustees make a final selection which hangs as a group exhibition at the S. H. Ervin Gallery, Sydney.
