The artist Guy Warren AM (b.1921) this year celebrates his 100th birthday and the University of Wollongong is honouring him with an exhibition drawn from the UOW Art Collection entitled “Hills and Wings: A Celebration of Guy Warren and his work”. It includes works by Guy Warren alongside a small selection of artworks that he acquired for UOW while he was Director of the Art Collection between 1992 and 2005.
The exhibition offers the chance to see works that have never been exhibited before as well as some of Guy’s rare and early prints from the 1950s and 60s. Other artists whose works can be seen in the exhibition include: Emily Kame Kngwarreye, James Gleeson, Elisabeth Cummings, Susan Marawarr, Colin Lanceley and Ben Brown.
The exhibition is open Monday to Wednesday, 10.00am to 3.00pm in the UOW Gallery located in the new Jillian Broadbent Building at the western end of the UOW Main campus. The exhibition is on between Monday, May 3 and Wednesday, July 28, 2021.
This exhibition was made possible with the support of the McKinnon Walker Trust.
