Geelong Gallery’s hosting of the Art Gallery of New South Wales 2017 Archibald Prize has provided a wonderful opportunity for business events in the region. Over 20 events have been hosted over the 6 week period including cocktail parties for 150 people, intimate viewings for 20 people and a number of sit down dinners.

Several events have included an exhibition overview from Director, Jason Smith and an opportunity for event organisers to provide their clients and guests with an exclusive opportunity to see the Prize in a more intimate setting than when open to the general public (which sees an average daily visit of over 1,200 people). Steampocket Catering have provided a two tiered food and beverage package for event organiser to select and feedback from all attendees has been overwhelmingly positive.

Feedback from event host: It was our absolute pleasure to attend the Geelong Gallery this evening to view the Archibald Prize exhibition. We enjoyed our viewing and the personalized commentary from Jason… The food and beverages served on the evening were fabulous and enjoyed by us all.  I would sincerely like to thank you for offering us this experience.

Geelong Gallery has begun taking expressions of interest for bookings for the 2018 Archibald Prize which runs from 22 September to 18 November 2018. For enquiries or to receive a Venue Hire package please contact Geelong Gallery at
