Not the Dante Gabriel Rossetti Beloved Frame (Maureen Prichard)

Echoes: Six Visual Artists Respond to the Rich History of Urrbrae House

Six visual artists working across a range of media, respond to the rich history of Urrbrae House. An exhibition inspired by the patterns and textures of the house and gardens, family traditions and personal stories of the Waite family in colonial South Australia. The artists’ practices include painting, drawing, tapestry weaving and ceramics. A passionate regard for the many reverberations of history in our contemporary world has provided fertile ground for individualised research and artists’ responses. This exhibition promises a rare treat for the SA History Festival. Artists: Michelle Driver, Yasmin Grass, Bruce Nuske, Abram Phillips, Maureen Prichard, Julie Strawinski.

Presented by Urrbrae House Historic Precinct, University of Adelaide
