Land's Edge: Prints of North Sydney's foreshores

Date : 
06 September 2019 
Venue: North Sydney Heritage Centre, Stanton Library
Council Event

Event Details

The earliest prints of North Sydney target a British audience intrigued by the distant colony; they contrast the untamed wildness of the north shore with the rising ‘civilisation’ of Sydney. From the late 1800s, as artists created prints alongside ‘traditional’ paintings and drawings, so the portrayal of North Sydney’s changing waterfront became more personal. By the early 1960s, printmaking was a bold visual art form in Australia. In contemporary art, printmaking has enjoyed a revival, inspired by the commercial success of indigenous prints and the potential of digital technology.

This is an exhibition of prints from North Sydney Council’s collection, depicting our foreshores. Artists featured include Ella Dwyer, Robert Emerson Curtis, Elizabeth Rooney, Peter Kingston and Paul Joyce.

Open during Library Hours.
