Maitland Regional Art Gallery Acquisitions

 Existential Self Portrait, 2006, charcoal on paper, 136 x 92 cm

Dance in Delirium, 2014, pencil, pastel and ink on paper, 71 x 22 cm

The Maitland Regional Art Gallery has just added these two drawings to their collection. The top drawing was in an exhibition at the Maroondah Art Gallery in 2011 called WHO AM I? Self Portraits in the Contemporary World. The bottom drawing is to be in an exhibition inspired by a Tom Waites song called The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me), 1977. The exhibition will run from 24 April - 21 June 2015. But I'll give more details closer to the date.
