Fifty of the famed Bald Archy Prize artworks landed at the Peppin Heritage Centre yesterday.
In its 21st year, the Bald Archy celebrates the satirical works of Australian politicians, sportspeople and well known personalities and is the brainchild of Peter Batey.
This year’s winner was titled ‘Wrecking Balls (Ashes to Ashes)’ by Judy Nadin, which features Australian cricketer Mitchell Johnson swinging on a giant cricket ball.
An official exhibition opening will take place at the Peppin Heritage Centre on Saturday at 6.30pm, with Mr Batey as special guest. Cost is $15 per person.
PHC tourism officer Denise Thomas says the town is ‘‘privileged’’ to have the comedic version of the Archibald Prize in Deniliquin.
‘‘It’s a once in a lifetime chance to see the exhibition, we never know if we’ll get the chance to host it each year,’’ she said.
‘‘We have been lucky to have it at the PHC for a few years in a row.
‘‘There are some great subjects this year – Clive Palmer has been a popular one.’’
Those wishing to attend the opening must book with the PHC on 5898
Entry to the PHC is by gold coin donation and visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite in the ‘people’s choice’ section. The Bald Archy will be on display until April 26.
