The biennial Prize is in recognition of celebrated local Queenscliff artist and academic, Graeme Peebles, who is world renowned for his intricate type of printmaking known as mezzotint.
Soula Mantalvanos and her husband Theo founded QG&W in an historic refurbished Wesleyan church in the township and were inspired to create the Prize two years ago to honour Graeme and create an amazing exhibition for locals and tourists alike to visit and admire. 360Q owner Barry Iddles offered $4000 to be a principal sponsor of the original Prize as well as this year’s competition.
The winner of the PPP 2019 receives a prize of: return economy airfares, accommodation, one week of art/print courses, full access with most materials included at Scuola Grafica in Venice, and cash. Valued to $6,000
The PPP19 Highly Commended Award is $2,000
The PPP19 ‘People’s Choice’ award is $500.
The exhibition’s official opening and winners announcement will take place at September 21 at noon followed by luncheon at 360Q. The exhibition will be open from September 19 to November 24.
Join us to celebrate the competition and the incredible artists who entered. It’s guaranteed to be a very special day.
