Gria Shead on show at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery

9 February 2022

Work by Gria Shead from her Kate Kelly series is on show until 27 February at Maitland Regional Art Gallery in an exhibition titled, Storylines. 

Storylines is an exhibition of contemporary Australian Artists—Robert Andrew, Tim Andrew, Richart Lewer, Anna Louise Richardson, Lucienne Rickard and Gria Shead—who use drawing to dissect the Historical timeline of our country. Drawing, by its very nature, comprises erasure and correction. The exhibiting artists use these actions to challenge the way we understand Australian History, suggesting new understandings of our past.

Gria Shead has spent much of her career investigating the lives of early Australian women, in particular, Kate Kelly—sister of Australia's most notorious outlaw/hero. Shead shines a light on the remarkable woman who played an important role in very male-dominated period of our country's history. 

Gria Shead was also included National Art (Part One), a summer exhibition at Maitland Regional Art Gallery that featured a dynamic selection of artworks by 50 of Australia's most significant artists who studied at National Art School.
