Inaugurated in 2006, the Prize is named in honour of respected painter, printmaker and draughtswoman, Miss Adelaide Elizabeth Perry (1891-1973) who taught Visual Arts at PLC Sydney from 1930 to 1962, the Prize attracts submissions from around the country.
With the enduring and generous support of the Parents and Friends’ Association, PLC Sydney continues to value and acknowledge this dynamic and constantly evolving art form and support artists whose practice highlights this.
The Perry Prize is one of the most well regarded of its kind in Australia. PLC Sydney and the Adelaide Perry Gallery gratefully acknowledge our judges, for their vast knowledge and expertise, and all of the entrants for their participation and support of the Prize.
Each year the exhibition of Finalists contributes tremendously as an inspirational learning opportunity for our students and provides the community with an engaging exhibition of varied subject matter and wide ranging technical approaches.
