February & March 09 - Big hART exhibition.
During February and March 2009 the gallery will be exhibiting Robert Hannaford's Big hART paintings. These paintings were created over a ten year period as part of the performance of three separate Big hART projects in Tasmania, Adelaide and Sydney. Hannaford was asked to paint the portraits of people from the communities involved as a way of validating the identities of often marginalized people. The resultant twenty five portraits, painted from life, are raw, energetic and poignant in their exploration of our common humanity. This will be the first time that they have been shown together.
Big hART is a multi-award winning arts company that uses theatre, film, TV, paintings, photography, dance, radio and other creative processes to support groups and communities who lack opportunity.
Founded in 1992 the organization has worked directly with over 4,000 individuals in over 30 rural and remote communities. Thus social problems such as domestic violence, drugs, suicide, low literacy levels, accident prevention, truancy, addiction and homelessness are constructively addressed.
Participation in Big hART projects has brought positive change to many lives. It has also produced original and exciting art of the highest calibre.
10 percent of the proceeds from the sale of these paintings will be donated to Big hART .
