THE country's most irreverent art exhibition is coming to Coffs Harbour.

The 2012 Bald Archy Tour will be unveiled at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery on Friday night, fresh from its Sydney showing.

A regular annual event at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery, the Bald Archy Prize is the popular portrait competition in which artists take a comical look at well-known Australians.

Now nearly 20 years old, the Bald Archy allows artists to add an extra dollop of humour, expressiveness and playfulness to the canvas.

The opening night begins at 6pm.

Entry is $10 and includes light refreshments.

The Bald Archy Prize runs until Saturday, June 2.
