A major exhibition of stunning portraits by a group of renowned female artists will be a feast for the eyes.
On view April 20 through May 29, “Women Painting Women” is a captivating group exhibition in Australia that was, at least in part, inspired by similar shows in the United States. Showcasing seven outstanding creators — Fiona Bilbrough, Jacqui Grantford, Raelene Sharp, Sally Ryan, Vicki Sullivan, Avril Thomas, and Heather Ellis — both painting and sculpture will be featured.
The exhibition is hosted by Burrinja Gallery in Upwey, Victoria, and is the country’s first installment of the “Women Painting Women” phenomenon. Via the exhibition webpage: “Featuring well known Australian women such as Nobel Prize Nominee Dr Catherine Hamlin, actors Kerri Armstrong and Jacqui Weaver, opera singer Liane Keegan, and self-portraits of the artists, the exhibition highlights the power and insight of women painting women and situates the artists’ work within the broader art historical context.”
