Elsewhere, an exhibition at Australian Galleries, 28 Derby Street, Collingwood Melbourne, opens on Tuesday 16th May and is current until 4th June

The twenty-six meter charcoal drawing extends across twelve large canvases. The work is an expression of the artist’s sustained engagement with the beauty of the desert and her interest in scale and vastness. This work is based on many years of travel and research in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia. This ambitious project is a 360 degree continuous, wrap-around drawing. A large new exhibition space at no.28, directly opposite Australian Galleries in Derby Street, Collingwood has made it possible to realize this project, a long-held dream.

Sample Coffee

Four of Wendy’s large charcoal drawings from her Antarctica series are hanging on the big white walls of a new Café in St Peters. Situated on Mary Street in three adjoining warehouse spaces, coffee enthusiast Reuben Marden has installed a beautiful old coffee roaster and opened a café called Sample Coffee Roasters. Check the website for opening times. 

The address is Precinct 75, Suite 1.01, 75 Mary Street, St Peters.

Research expedition, Western Deserts, 2014.

In July 2014 Wendy joined a small expedition which embarked in Alice Springs, traveled westwards to Docker River in Western Australia before heading north through Pintubi (Bindubi) desert country to Lake Mackay, eventually reaching the Balgo Hills escarpment in the Tanami Desert via the Palotine Hills. This experience informed her 2015 work.
