2018 Portia Geach Memorial Award

The Portia Geach Memorial Award is Australia’s most prestigious art prize for portraiture by women artists.

The exhibition of portraiture by contemporary Australian women artists displays selected entries from artists across the nation representing the diversity in contemporary practice.

The Award is recognised as one of the most important celebrations of the talents and creativity of Australian female portrait painters and has played a major role in developing the profile of Australian women artists.

The $30,000 Portia Geach Memorial Award was established by Florence Kate Geach in memory of her sister, artist Portia Geach. The award is presented to an Australian female artist for the best portrait of a subject distinguished in art, letters or the sciences.

Geach was widely acclaimed as a leading artist and was a frequent commentator in the national media of the time, making her an iconic figure in the Australian arts community.

The Portia Geach Memorial Award is given by Perpetual as trustee to the entry with the highest artistic merit.

The Portia Geach Memorial Award has nurtured hundreds of emerging and established women artists to exhibit their works since being first awarded in 1965.
