A Closer Look at…Nora Heysen AM & Constance Stokes: Drawings from the Estates

Lauraine Diggins Fine Art invites you to take Closer Look At... Nora Heysen AM and Constance Stokes: Drawings from the Estates.

This exhibition allows an intimate view of each artist through over 80 drawings sourced from family archives, from student days and throughout their working careers. These works give us an insight into each artist – their working practices, their thoughts, their development, their interests. Drawing provides an immediacy, expressing much through a simple line on a blank page. To read further, please download our Closer Look At... essay here.

We were delighted that Associate Professor Alison Inglis was able to open this exhibition and provide us with such insightful and educational remarks and we wish to especially thank Lucilla Wyborn d’Abrera, daughter of Constance Stokes, and Stephanie Griffiths, niece of Nora Heysen for sharing their experiences.

Please also view the video of the exhibition opening video here.

A fully illustrated colour catalogue is available to download here, or alternatively contact the Gallery to obtain a copy.
