Not the Archies

Person holding their Not the Archies portrait

Welcome! We are so glad you are here and considering participating in Not the Archies 2019!

We would like to celebrate the people, who live, work and play in the Yarra Ranges. We want portraits of locals; painted, drawn, collaged, weaved, or sketched by you. We supply the canvas - you supply the artwork and the story. Your subject can be anyone who you think is ‘great’ who lives, works, studies or plays in the Yarra Ranges, even yourself!

Entry is open to anyone of any age with a connection to the Yarra Ranges.


$10 for 18+
$5 for 17 and under
$5 concession

Registration fee includes a 12" x 16" (A3) canvas board to create your artwork on. 

Works submitted will be exhibited in the main streets of Yarra Glen and Healesville in our Street Gallery in October and November. There are some great prizes up for grabs.
