Upcoming Exhibitions

11 - 26 August

ART FOR BOOKS:
Adrian Lockhart + Jedda Robaard

Opening Night 6 - 8pm Friday 11 August
Patti Manolis, CEO Geelong Library will launch the exhibitions. All welcome!


Adrian Lockhart’s love of the line in printmaking and drawing is well represented in Art for Books, but his discovery of artist books and their various forms is at the heart. Showing his books alongside related paintings, drawings, woodblocks, etchings and monotypes demonstrates how the union of the ‘book’ and the ‘mark’ has formed a significant direction in his already substantial and established life’s work.

For Jedda Robaard book illustration is an opportunity to create little worlds where characters can play, unhindered by society’s restrictions. This body of work represents her journey creating those worlds, from her initial book Rabbit’s Year through to the ongoing Little Creatures Series. The majority of these pieces have been created simply with pencil and watercolour. They are just puddles of colour if you like. Puddles manipulated into tiny beings with feelings, obligations and agendas. Jedda Robaard will present an artist’s talk at 10.30am Saturday 19 August.
