Drawn Together

@ Little Space Gallery - 14 September 2017

Exhibition curators: Dr Abbey MacDonald and Jane Giblin
Opened by: Dr Megan Walch

TATA further celebrated the resurgence of life drawing practice and pedagogy in Tasmanian schools in 'Drawn Together'; a body of life drawing works from Tasmanian art teachers and TCE students, hosted at the Hobart College Little Space Gallery. 'Drawn Together' extended upon the foundation TATA teacher exhibition earlier in the year 'Body of Work', and from a series of pedagogical and practical life drawing workshops TATA councillor Jane Giblin facilitated in the north, north west and south. 'Drawn Together' showcases the outstanding standard of life drawing professional practice and pedagogy of our art teachers, and the implications our teachers' proficiency and professionalism is having for the remarkable emerging practice demonstrated by Tasmanian TCE students. We were privileged to have Dr Megan Walch join us to open the show with affirmation, cultivating future directions and ideas to continue growing into 2018. Thanks to Romany Best and and Hobart College for hosting 'Drawn Together', to TATA councillor Jane Giblin for her generosity and leadership, and to Adam Frost for his gallery technician support.

Keep an eye out: Jane Giblin will be continuing to run life drawing classes into 2018.
