Archibald Fever has started

Just recently we had a call from Channel 9 News wanting to film in our gallery for a story on the upcoming Archibald Prize. 612 ABC Morning Host, Spencer Howson and 4BC's Jamie Dunn participated in the promotion - Spencer's brother Alexander Devenport painted Spencer's portrait as an entry into this years show. We had so much fun for a couple of hours shooting ! the paintings were huge!! It was nice to meet and greet the arists as well - John Sparks and Paul Evans.
