Abbey McCulloch for Portia Geach Memorial Award 2015
We are very pleased to announce Abbey McCulloch was a finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award. The Award is recognised as one of the most important celebrations of the talents and creativity of contemporary Australian female portrait painters.
The Portia Geach Memorial Award was established by the will of the late Florence Kate Geach in memory of her sister, Portia Geach. The non-acquisitive award of $30,000 is awarded by the Trustee for the entry which is of the highest artistic merit, 'for the best portrait painted from life of some man or woman distinguished in Art, Letters, or the Sciences by any female artist resident in Australia.'
