Check out Bald Archy winners

HEAD to Coffs Harbour’s Bunker Cartoon gallery between 10am and 4pm today for a squiz at the winner and front-runners in the 2010 Bald Archy Prize.

Here you will see our politicians, celebrities and tall poppies debunked in paint.

The Bald Archy Tour 2010 is on show at the Bunker Cartoon Gallery until May 22, accompanied by a smaller show of work by leading cartoonist Ken Emerson, the creator of dinkum Aussie cartoon the Warrumbunglers. Ken Emerson died recently.

The PM must be too serious a subject for caricature. Kevin Rudd makes only one small appearance, with his head on the tip of a banana, while the Opposition leader was obviously more risible, with Tony Abbott being the subject of nine entries.

Visitors to the show are also invited to buy the paintings or place a bid on the chance of securing the painting at a bargain price.

The Bald Archy Prize 2010 runs at the Bunker Gallery from yesterday to May 22. Entry is $5 for adults and $3 for children. The gallery hours are 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday. The Bunker Cartoon Gallery is located at John Champion Way, Coffs Harbour.
