They missed it last year, but now it's back the most talked about exhibition any year makes its return to the National Cartoon Gallery. The Bald Archy Prize was founded in 1994 in a small village outside Gundagai, by experienced arts administrator and successful theatre director, the late Peter Batey OAM, as part of an arts festival named the Coolac Festival of Fun, to avoid discrimination by those afraid of a cultural image. It has been regarded as something of an embarrassing country-cousin by some of Australia’s more ‘upper- crust’ arts families made up of Gallery Advisory Committees, self-appointed arts journalists, amateur bloggers, pseudo-intellectual socialites and third-rate artists. Come and see for yourself just how irreverent the Bald Archy exhibition can be! Entry Cost Adult $0 - Admission is Adults AUD6, Under 16 and Friends Free
