Upcoming Events at Nutcote for all ages
Three well known Australians Exhibition
Wednesday 2th October 2019 until 31st October 2019
Can you guess the identities of these well-known Australians?
Sydney-based artist Martin Shaw has brought his exhibition Three Well-Known Australians to Nutcote. In 1982, Shaw painted his portrait of three mysterious figures which represent noted Australians. He has not revealed the identities in his artwork. Three Well-Known Australians has been touring Australia since 1983 and has been hosted by over 150 venues. It is one of the longest running touring exhibitions in Australia. As the exhibition has traveled across the nation, visitors have been recording their thoughts on the identities of the figures in yearbooks.
One part art exhibition, one part social experiment, the portrait and responses capture the diversity of Australians and their opinions. They are a reflection of Australian society at a certain point in time. Some people have recorded politicians, sport stars and artists, while others have suggested general and abstract themes, such as compassion and strength. There are the famous and the infamous, the historical and contemporary, the serious and amusing. Some people have also recorded their political and social concerns.
Visitors to Nutcote are welcome to leave their suggestions in the yearbook.
Three Well-Known Australians will be at Nutcote all of October.
Normal admission price applies.
