Friday, 15 October 2021 - 10:00am to Sunday, 28 November 2021 - 5:00pm

Drawing is the foundation of Salvatore Zofrea’s artistic practice. This exhibition, celebrating the Zofrea’s 75th year, traces the development of the artist through drawing; from his early sketches to preliminary drawings for woodblock prints, psalm paintings, frescoes, stained glass windows and his most recent circle series of multi-panelled paintings.

The narrative underlying is Zofrea’s personal journey from Italy to the Australian landscape, and the power of mark-making. Presented in partnership with Orange Regional Gallery.
