The Dean Cogle Portrait prize proudly supported by Michelle Neumann offers $5000.00 first prize. The Exhibition will open on the 3rd August 2019 and run through to the 4th September 2019. Founded by Dean Cogle in 2015, the inaugural exhibition held annually at Dust Temple began with humble beginnings. Dean recognised the general void of a Portraiture Prize on the Coast and called together local artists to exhibit. Now in its 4th year we are honoured to continue Dean Cogle’s vision to bring an annual Portrait Prize, open to all Australian residents, to the Gold Coast, with the ongoing support and generosity of Michelle Neumann.
