Upcoming Exhibition

Making Her Mark: Selected Works from the Collection

Making Her Mark: Selected Works from the Collection offers a new appraisal of the work of leading women artists held in the collection of TarraWarra Museum of Art. The exhibition explores the themes arising from works by women artists in the collection—such as memory, landscape and abstraction—and also includes a modest selection of works by male artists that amplify these images, ideas and styles. In this way, art by women is not seen as a category, but rather as a catalyst.

Making Her Mark provides the opportunity to make new comparisons across decades: Jenny Watson and Charles Blackman; Louise Hearman and Godfrey Miller; Kate Beynon and Howard Arkley. Rather than a dialogue about precedent and influence, this exhibition presents a nuanced conversation about image, composition and mark-making where women take centre-stage.

Other artists from the TarraWarra Museum of Art collection presented in this exhibition include Janet Dawson, Rosalie Gascoigne, Denise Green, Melinda Harper, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Joanna Lamb, Janet Laurence, Rosslynd Piggott, Hilarie Mais, Aida Tomescu and John Nixon.
