A Blast from the Past

Castlemaine Art Gallery and Historical Museum have just done an extensive rehang. We called into the gallery yesterday and enjoyed revisiting some of the collection's many highlights.

In conjunction with this, their latest exhibition (which opened on Saturday) focuses on artists from the Castlemaine region whose works are held in the gallery's permanent collection.

My own work, Femme Fatale, 1996, linocut with chine colle, is currently on view in the Benefactor's Gallery. It was acquired at the conclusion of the touring survey exhibition Deborah Klein - Out of the Past 1995-2007, which was guest curated by Diane Soumilas. The work originates from the Film Noir series (1995-1997.)

View their website HERE.

To see other works from the Film Noir series visit the Portfolio Page on my website.
