The Gallipoli art prize – a silent affair
This weekend a year ago, there was a tiny notice in the SMH about the Gallipoli Art Prize and an exhibition of the entrants at the Gallipoli Club in Loftus St near Circular Quay. We went to see the paintings, and there’s not much I to add. We were the only visitors there last Sunday, which is strange. Please click on the images to see a larger file.
