Women Painting Women is a major exhibition of portraiture in traditional oil painting and bronze sculpture. It foregrounds seven female, award-winning, realist painters from Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.
Featuring well known Australians including Nobel Prize Nominee Dr Catherine Hamlin, actor Jacqui Weaver, opera singer Liane Keegan, and self-portraits of the artists, the exhibition highlights the power and insight of women painting women.
Taking its inspiration from the Women Painting Women exhibitions in the United States, this is the first Australian instalment of the Women Painting Women phenomenon which celebrates traditional realist painting and the talent of female artists.
