Formed in 2012, WA Portrait Artists is a association of artists who include portraiture within their practice. Bianually, we host a group exhibition to promote the members work and showcase the diversity of interpretation that make up the genre.​

During the exhibition we hold a workshop, demonstrations and artist talks for members of our community to engage in.

Membership to the group requires the artist live in Western Australia and have been a finalist in a major portraiture award such as the Black Swan Portrait Prize, Doug Moran National Portrait Prize or The Archibald.
