Cowra Regional Art Gallery is pleased to announce the launch of a new exhibition on Saturday 19 October at 2.30pm.

Helen Geier: Through Two Decades examines paintings and works on paper by Braidwood-based artist Helen Geier, produced between 2000 and 2019. Geier has been exhibiting nationally and internationally for more than four decades. Her exhibition history is substantial beginning in 1972 and continuing into 2019. Her art explores the activity of painting and is characterised by an incisive intellectual approach. That approach is expressed through examination of the Australian landscape. Her examinations however extend the notion of the landscape to include multiple ways of looking and seeing the landscape. The influence of travel is also a strong impetus providing thematic stimulus and diverse
cultural and (art) historical references.

Prior to the exhibition opening Helen Geier will present a floor talk at 2pm – All Welcome.
