Theo Mantalvanos printing in the Queenscliff workshop.

10 February 2017

As of next month the Queenscliff Gallery & Workshop (QG&W) will exhibit unpublished etchings by Sir Arthur Streeton that have been posthumously printed by co-owner of the gallery space, artist Theo Mantalvanos.

Eleven etchings in total will be on display, along with discovered zinc and copper plates, initial proofs and other related works that have been kindly loaned from the Streeton family members.

The exhibition, which will be on show until the end of April in the beautifully refurbished Wesleyan church, is a chance to demonstrate the legacy of an artist of Sir Arthur Streeton's calibre.

Nine resident artists will work in the gallery to show their influence, while others create contemporary works especially for the exhibition.

Included are works by co-owner Soula Mantalvanos, Emmy Mavroidis, James Pasakos, Joel Wolter, Philip Davey, Adam Nudelman, Amanda Firenze, Michelle Joy Caithness, and Andrew Weatherill.

The Streeton Prints exhibition will run from March 4 – April 30. For more information, visit www.qgw.com.au/event/streeton-prints
