A Bird in the Hand! Bob Graham: A Retrospective
This exhibition celebrates the work of Bob Graham, one of Australia`s most revered and acclaimed creators of children`s picture books. It`s a fascinating personal insight into his intentions as an artist through a collection of his art, carefully selected from works he has donated to the Lu Rees Archives in Canberra, and some from his own studio. Thus this exhibition also demonstrates and celebrates the wonderful depth of resources available in these Archives.
