Book launch: Treasures of Canberra by Betty Churcher and Lucy Quinn
Former Director of the National Gallery of Australia, author and television personality Betty Churcher has collaborated with Canberra artist Lucy Quinn to select outstanding works from our national capital's museums, galleries and archives.
The result is a beautiful book which showcases famous works, including Jackson Pollock's Blue Poles and John Webber's portrait of Captain Cook, alongside lesser known wonders, such as the sketchbook of Oscar, an Aboriginal station hand in colonial north Queensland. Join Betty Churcher and Lucy Quinn for a talk about the book, followed by a question-and-answer session.
Includes refreshments and book signing.
