Art Encounter

Saturday 19 November, 11.30am

Visiting an art gallery can often be an overwhelming experience. From materials to meaning, what you see can be baffling and there is always more to see. Not to mention all the standing required!  

Art Encounters is here to help. In these 30-minute sessions we’ll guide you through a Gallery experience that will have you coming back for more.  

Each session will be an encounter with a single artwork. We’ll spend the time looking, examining, and exploring the elements that make the art work.  

Slow down, look, and wonder, and get to know an artwork more intimately. 

November topic: How does one make sense of a life through artmaking? This month for Art Encounter, join us for a discussion about Joanna Margaret Paul’s Unwrapping the body (1977), an intimate publication produced by the artist in the wake of her daughter Imogen’s untimely passing. *Sensitive Content Warning.
