August 19, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

An informal opportunity for you to get up close to view of ‘Self-portrait, paddocks and paraphernalia’ by local artist Irene Coburn

On a scheduled Saturday of each month, one of our trained presenters will set up a table from 10:00am until 10:30am in the Foyer Gallery. This is an opportunity for visitors who wish to view the selected Artist Book of the Month. You can simply ask to see the book page by page, or delve into a shared chat about the artist, techniques and possible concepts.

10:00am Saturday, 19 August

This month’s BOOK of the MONTH program will be held just before the Zanny Begg Floor talk, register for both and make it a full Saturday morning of great art experiences!
