This event is now in the past.

Taking a cue from the curious and lolloping dogs that inhabit Ron McBurnie’s work, enjoy the many ways that animal stories and lives have been interpreted in artists’ books. From elephants and cats to chickens, snakes and fish, all creatures are subjects for the attention of visual artists and are portrayed in amazing and creative ways in artists’ books.

This event is part of the Metal As Anything: Ron McBurnie exhibition, showcasing 30 years of intricate and endearing etchings by one of Australia’s leading printmakers.
