It’s the last chance to catch our two portrait exhibitions this Saturday: 6° OF SEPARATION and a solo exhibition by Melbourne Now artist Patrick Francis close on Saturday 23 August at 5pm.
6° OF SEPARATION is an exhibition of portraits painted from life of prominent Australian personalities who sat for a portrait in the Arts Project Australia studio. Curated by Sim Luttin, the project connects prominent leaders in the community with Arts Project Australia and its artists and features portraits of politicians, artists, actors, writers, satirists, entrepreneurs, musicians, footballers, and entertainers.
Portrait sitter John Clarke said of his experience, “The emergence of a self-portrait from the study of others is familiar to me. An understanding of the usefulness of a favourite form is very familiar to me. The huge power of an instinctive response is familiar to us all. Seeing these recognisable approaches at work in a group of visual artists I didn’t know was an unusual delight.”
