Opening Event Thursday June 2nd at 6pm until 9pm

This is the first exhibition by Deny Christian at the VAS, after a long and distinguished career in portraiture, and more recently in still life.

The collection covers the two major genres of Ms Christian's work. Portraiture and Still life. Drawing and painting.

Showing 8 exquisite character portraits drawn from life this part of the exhibition shows the command Ms Christian has of classical academic drawing, and her deep love of the portrait.
             
The Still life room has 12 rich and lustrous works of the stuff of life: the provedore kitchen, wine and cheese, books and music and produce from the home garden. Painted with an exquisite classical pallette and chiaroscuro.

This exciting exhibition will be opened on Thursday 2nd June at 6pm by Dr Lisa Beavan, who is an Art Historian and Lecturer with special interest in Italian painting and sculpture . She is a consultant and writer for both National and international Galleries, from the NGV to the Prado Museum.

The exhibition runs until Monday 13th June.

Ms Christian has forged a career in art that encompasses a passionate and sincere aesthetic. She pursues harmony, technical excellence, and classical beauty in all its forms.

Her work has been exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, and The AGNSW where she won the 1999 Packer's Prize at the Archibald Prize with her portrait of ‘Garry McDonald. National Living treasure.’

The exhibition opens on Thursday June 2nd at 6pm.
