Enjoy this exhibition of portraits by students at the Ballarat Specialist School of people they regard as special in their lives. Over 250 students have worked for a term on creating this project, looking at Archibald Prize portraits past and present as well as portraits in the collection of the Art Gallery of Ballarat. These works in a range of media showcase the talents and achievements of students at the school.

Free guided tours of the exhibition are available, led by students who have trained in guiding with the Gallery’s own Volunteer Guides.

My Special Archies is presented in association with the Archibald Prize 2015 at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, an Art Gallery of New South Wales touring exhibition and is supported by Gandel Philanthropy.
