Works selected by Latrobe Regional Gallery Staff
29 October 2016 – 8 January 2017
Hand-Picked showcases a selection of works chosen from the collection by Latrobe Regional Gallery staff. Selected works include sculpture, print-making, glass, painting and photography, celebrating the diversity of the LRG Collection.
The brief for this exhibition required staff to reflect upon their favourite works from the collection. There were no restrictions placed on what could be chosen, resulting in a varied and distinct exhibition of works. The reasons for selection are unique and individual, including narrative, emotional response, materiality, colour, and composition.
The exhibition brings together a variety of subject matter, materials and themes, whilst revealing a little bit about each staff member’s personality. Hand-Picked includes artists such as George Baldessin, Noel Counihan, Michael Gallop, Clarice Beckett, Geoffrey Dupree, Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison.
