Artist Talks are free and provide a unique opportunity to meet the artists and learn more about the exhibitions in the Gallery in a fun and informal atmosphere. This Autumn we will meet two renowned Australian artists with careers spanning many decades: Anne Graham and Wendy Stavrianos.
Anne Graham is one of Australia’s most accomplished artists with an artistic and academic career spanning three decades and four continents. In Australia, however, Graham has remained an enigmatic figure, concentrating on her academic career, research interests, and community projects conducted in America, Asia and Europe. Anne's latest work, Whispering and Rustling, the Susurrus of People, Places and Things, will be on display from 20 May - 2 July 2017.
Wendy Stavrianos was born in Melbourne and studied at RMIT and later an MA at Monash University, she has an extensive exhibition history throughout Australia as well as in various international forums. Examples of Wendy’s works are in major public and regional art galleries and private collections overseas and throughout Australia. Wendy's latest work, Silent Rooms and Portals to Uncertain Shores, will be on display 20 May - 25 June 2017.
