She may not have captured his trademark mismatched socks but to those who knew late Bangalow identity Michael Malloy, local artist Hilary Herman has undoubtedly captured his spirit.

The portrait of Michael, who died from cancer last year, is one of 55 finalist artworks chosen from 118 entries in this year’s Northern Rivers Portrait Prize.

The ‘Archibalds of the north coast’ will soon be on exhibition at the Lismore Regional Gallery.

The exhibition will be opened on 24 March at 6pm by local member Thomas George. Entries will be judged and announced on the night by former Archibald winner Del Kathryn Barton.

The main prize is $10,000 (acquisitive) and there is also a people’s choice ($500) where gallery-goers can vote for their favourite work.

It runs from 24 March to 6 May, Tues to Fri from 10am to 4pm, Thurs from 10am to 6pm, Sat and Sun 10am to 2pm.
