Sustaining the art of practice

25 June – 20 August 2022

Sustaining the art of practice draws on works from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art to reveal links between artists and the communities and environments that support their practice. This exhibition is an opportunity to consider how artists are fuelled by a multitude of relationships:  the legacy of family, art historical precedents, community and to landscape and Country. Necessarily, the passions and drivers upon which an individual’s identity is founded are reflected in the work they produce. 

Artists in the exhibition include: Maria Kozic, Angela Stewart, Jody Quackenbush, Ruth Tuck, Julia Church, Alison Alder, Raquel Ormella, Amanda Bell, Nalda Searles, Barbara Haddy, Marcelle Riley, Lydia Young, Margret Morgan, Narelle Jubelin, Helen Grace. 

Cordite Poetry Review collaboration with Dr Elfie Shiosaki and Kent MacCarter. Featuring poetry by Yeena Kirkbright, Barbara Hostalek & Charmaine Papertalk Green
