Arts Project Australia is pleased to invite you to the opening of John Northe Solo & After…

Both exhibitions open Saturday 18 July from 3-5pm at Arts Project Australia in Northcote. The exhibitions will be opened by Councillor Oliver Walsh, Deputy Mayor, City of Darebin.

John Northe Solo presents a collection of pastel and pencil drawings by the late John Northe (1943 – 2009). This exclusive selection is exhibited courtesy the Estate of John Northe and Arts Project Australia. Northe created a significant body of work over the course of his artistic career while working in Arts Project Australia’s studios. He was introduced to Arts Project Australia in 1989, where he went on to create hundreds of pastel and pencil drawings. His work is held in public and private collections both in Australia and overseas, including the National Gallery of Australia.

Coinciding with John Northe’s solo exhibition is the group show After…, which explores how images can be reinterpreted and insightfully transformed into unique artworks in their own right. The exhibition presents the work of 21 local artists and features many familiar faces and paintings from art history. Exhibition curator Penelope Hunt says, “All artists look at and respond to the work of other artists. Whether for insights, inspiration, as study techniques or for the sheer love and intrigue around another’s work, artists take cues from each other”.

After… brings together work by Arts Project artists Alvaro Alvarez, Peter ben, Michael Camakaris, Peter Cave, Valerio Ciccone, Patrick Francis, Bronwyn Hack, Paul Hodges, Ruth Howard, Miles Howard-wilks, Bobby Kyriakopoulos, Fiona Longhurst, Julian Martin, Cameron Noble, Jodie Noble, Daniel Pace, Lisa Reid, Anthony Romagnano, Fiona Taylor, Amani Tia and Tim Williams.
