Parallel Prints launch at the Art Gallery of Ballarat

Although it was only launched last night, Parallel Prints (see previous post) has been open to the public for over a week and is already receiving a tremendous response. The exhibition coincides with the Archibald Prize, the controversial contemporary portrait exhibition that recently travelled to the Art Gallery of Ballarat from its home at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Many of those who initially came to see the Archibald have discovered this less-hyped, more intimate show and have stayed on to spend some quality time with the works.

Parallel Prints is showing concurrently at Art at Wharepuke, Kerikeri, New Zealand.

Pictured below and above are some snaps from last night. For more photos of the Parallel Prints launch, go to my Art Blog.
