Ben Quilty "Toasted" in Robertson

Robertson artist Ben Quilty is no longer "just" a local celebrity, he is a national celebrity. He won the Moran Prize in 2009, and followed up by winning the Archibald Prize this year.

Jenny Kena, as Chair of the Robertson Community Technology Centre, hosted a community gathering to celebrate Ben's success in the Archibald Prize.

Andrew Ford, another Robertson local, as well as being the host of the ABC Radio National's "The Music Show", was invited to put Ben through his paces in an "interview".
