Our upcoming exhibition Beard and Influence (10 July – 15 August 2016) explores portraiture and the performative nature of the artist in the various guises of twelve Australian bushrangers.

Clayton Tremlett has recreated original photographs of twelve bushrangers, and from this documentation he has developed self-portraits in linocut and laser resist etching prints.

Hear the artist discuss his work in a floor talk on Sunday 10 July at 2pm. For more details contact gallery staff on (03) 5472 2292 or frontofhouse@castlemainegallery.com.

Don’t miss the remarkable Beard and Influence by local artist Clayton Tremlett, an exhibition which presents a contemporary approach to the compelling stories of some of Australia’s most notorious bushrangers.
