Tim, Tom E., Harry, Rusty, Tiger and Pussycat. Recent Works on Paper with Basil Hall

  • VENUE: Gorman Arts Centre : Nancy Sever Gallery
  • COST: Free
  • PRESENTER: Nancy Sever Gallery
  • WHEN: 11am to 5pm
    20 June 2018 - 22 July 2018

The Nancy Sever Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent works by indigenous artists from six remote communities that have been hand-printed by the master printmaker, Basil Hall, and his assistants at his BH Editions studios in Canberra and Braidwood.

The works on paper are all either etchings, woodblock prints, screen prints or combinations of the above that have been drawn, carved or painted by the contributing artists during workshops in remote communities run by Basil Hall. Each is an original work of art, done in the same way that Rembrandt made his etchings, Dürer made his woodblocks and Warhol made his screen prints.

The show’s title refers to six of the many participants and their names have been selected simply to introduce the viewers to some of the wonderful and talented characters making art in the bush in the Northern Territory, the Kimberley and the APY Lands across the top of South Australia.

For further information on the exhibition please contact Nancy Sever at nancy.sever@iinet.com.au or Tel 02 6182 0055. The Gallery is open Wednesdays to Sundays 11am – 5pm.
