Portraits Project – Greg Weight | Sunday, 23. August 2020
About this Event
This event is part of The Portraits Project, on show 7 August – 18 October 2020.
This series of special exhibitions focussed on portraiture, in celebration of Manly Art Gallery & Museum’s 90 years, and as a powerful expression of many of the artists connected with Sydney’s Northern Beaches and with whom MAG&M has worked over the past decade. Fifteen self-portrait paintings and drawings by acclaimed Sydney artists working in this genre take centre place in the Batten gallery. A series of twenty commissioned photographic portraits by Greg Weight provides a snapshot of key practitioners living and working on the Northern Beaches now. Finally, an exhibition of six figurative works from MAG&M’s visual art collection intermingle with our museum objects collection to illuminate the key theme of ‘the beach’.
The represented artists in the portrait photography section are; Julia Davis, Shoufay Derz, Helen Earl, Katherine Edney, Ben Edols & Kathy Elliott, Salvatore Gerardi & Sandra Svilans, Mick Glasheen, Bruce Goold, Warren Langley, Chris Langlois, Helge Larsen & Darani Lewers, Kathrin Longhurst, Willi Michalski, Susan Milne & Greg Stonehouse, Michael Muir, John Ogden & Louise Whelan, Amanda Penrose Hart, Evert Ploeg, Sarah Robson, Mika Utzon Popov & Kirsten Fazio, **** Watkins, Jo & Joshua Yeldham and Salvatore Zofrea.
Numbers strictly limited to 30pp. Bookings essential.
