Ruth Faerber is an important artist in the history of Australian printmaking and hand-made paper based art forms. Recognised nationally for her role as educator, critic and artist, Ruth has also been a three time winner in the non-painting category of the Mosman Art Prize during the 1970s and 1980s. As a result of these acquisitions as well as generous donations from the artist to the Gallery, we are fortunate to be able to display a series of works spanning five decades of her artistic career.
During this exhibition period there will be additional selected highlights from the Mosman Art Collection on display including works by Noel Counihan and John Brack.
