The Lester Prize

The Lester Prize is a prestigious portraiture prize that showcases the work of artists from across Australia. Considered to be one of the nation’s major art awards, The Lester Prize is held annually in Perth, Western Australia, and honours the finest in contemporary portraiture from emerging to established artists.

In 2021, The Lester Prize travelled to the Collie Art Gallery as a part of its regional touring program. Returning this year, a selection of portraits from the 2023 Lester Prize exhibition will be proudly presented in partnership with the Collie Art Gallery from 13th of April to 19th of May. This is a great opportunity for people in the South West Region of Western Australia to see the exhibition and engage with the continuing tradition and innovative spirit of portraiture.
