Summer Sketching: Robert Klippel

Our popular Summer Sketching series returns in 2020 to coincide with ASSEMBLED: The Art of Robert Klippelwith drawing workshops, live music from Rosie Westbrook and tours with exhibition curator Kirsty Grant.

Join us for a relaxed day of family-friendly activities – all inspired by the work of Robert Klippel, one of Australia’s most significant sculptors whose inspiration came as much from nature as it did from the man-made world of machines.

From 11am-1pm, take in the Yarra Valley views from our lakeside deck where you’ll be led by experienced drawing teachers to sketch the natural landscape, accompanied by a performance from multi-instrumentalist Rosie Westbrook who will play original compositions crafted in response to the work of Robert Klippel.

Then, head inside the Museum for the afternoon (exhibition admission fees apply) and learn more about Klippel with a guided tour from exhibition curator Kirsty Grant, enjoy indoor sketching workshops and hear a final performance by Rosie Westbrook, all surrounded by Klippel’s incredible abstract-organic creations.

FREE (exhibition admission fees apply for indoor activities). All sketching materials provided or bring along your own. No bookings required and suitable for all ages and experience levels.

ROSIE WESTBROOK

Rosie Westbrook is an Australian multi-instrumentalist and composer. Classically trained in guitar and double bass, she has played in orchestras, chamber ensembles, theatrical productions and with numerous contemporary music artists, both within Australia and internationally.

Rosie has released two solo CDs: Wave in 2003 and Big As The Ocean in 2007. Both received critical acclaim and established Rosie’s compositional style of intensely emotional and cinematic music, featuring the bowed double bass.

As a composer for film and television, Rosie has produced soundtracks for documentary films profiling Australian artists including: Lindy Lee; Del Kathryn Barton; Jon Cattapan; Reg Mombassa and Patricia Piccinini.

In recent years, Rosie has developed a solo performance practice based on responding to visual art and creating live musical installations with the guitar and the double bass. This has included installations for exhibitions at TarraWarra Museum of Art; Kaliman Gallery (NSW); Milani Gallery (QLD); University of Queensland Art Museum and a series of commissions to create music for works produced by the Australian Tapestry Workshop.

Rosie is currently an Artist-in-Residence at the Australian Tapestry Workshop.
