Glover Prize 2019 Attracts Over 9,000 Visitors

It was another successful year for the Glover Prize in 2019, with over 9,000 people going through the iconic Falls Park Pavilion in Evandale over the nine days on which the Exhibition was open.

Included in these visitors were 1,500 school students who took in the range of fantastic artworks on display as part of their art education.

This year, the Glover Prize achieved a record number of visitors taking part in the Guided Tours, as well as a record number of paintings sold.

Glover Prize Exhibition School Visits

Included in the over 9,000 visitors to the exhibition, we had the pleasure of hosting over 1,200 curious students from 22 schools and colleges from across the state.

It was fantastic to see the next generation of artists and art lovers explore the array of styles, themes, and ideas that were on display.

This year, the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society (ADFAS) sponsored five primary schools to allow students to attend the Glover Prize Exhibition. This wonderful sponsorship initiative granted school children who would otherwise be unlikely to attend the Glover Prize access to the visual arts.

Thank you to everyone involved

The John Glover Society would like to thank the partners, sponsors, judges, curator, artists, volunteer guides, hangers, Rotary Club of Evandale, Glover Country, Glover Committee, all of the public who attended this year’s exhibition, and everyone else who assisted in putting together this year’s event.

We would also like to acknowledge The Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society (ADFAS) for funding the bus transport for several primary schools who otherwise would not have been able to attend.

Without all of these people involved, the Glover Prize 2019 would not have been possible.
