Sunday Funday - Colour and Female Modernism

The View from 1919 exhibition celebrates the rise of female artists and their pivotal role in the modernist movement.

The turn of the twentieth century was a crucial time for women artists in Australia. The View from 1919: shows how women began to gain recognition and respect as ‘professional artists’ in this period more, than ever before. From 1919 and onwards, women were a visible and active presence at the country’s major art schools, where female students far outnumbered their male peers. Works by women artists were hung at major exhibitions, and travel to Europe to pursue further study and professional opportunities was commonplace.

Join us for Sunday Funday as we draw inspiration from the likes of Thea Proctor and Margaret Preston. We will be using traditional and contemporary printmaking tools to create colourful artworks, in the spirit of female modernists.
