Through Her Eyes is an exhibition that not only celebrates West Australian women in the arts, but it also brings two collections together. This has been a rewarding collaboration between the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery and the Edith Cowan University Art Collection.
With the generosity and support of the Edith Cowan University Art Collection curator, Sue Starcken, this exhibition presents a wonderful opportunity to bring to you diversity and richness in content, as well as a chance to see works that are not always easily accessible to the public.
Through their major contributions to the art world, the female artists in this exhibition have helped shape the identity of West Australian art and gained national and international recognition. The rich and diverse backgrounds of these women and the eclectic display of artistic art forms are providing a unique voice to the art dialogue.
The works span from the 1960’s to present, address a broad range of subject matters and present a good insight on the individual views and expressions.
We are also very excited to present a Panel Discussion for a more in-depth conversation about the representation of women in the arts.
This will be held here at BRAG on Saturday 24th of November 11am – 1pm.
This is a free public event.
Perth artist Jo Darbyshire will be accompanied by emerging South West artist Sarah Mills, Indigenous Noongar artist Sandra Hill and printmaker and former lecturer at Edith Cowan University Yvonne Dorricott. The convener will be Sue Starcken, curator/lecturer Edith Cowan University.
