Queenscliff Gallery (QG) is a proud supporter of Geelong Gallery (GG), offering members a special consideration on their second QG purchase (so sign up!). For this small gesture, QG Directors Soula and Theo Mantalvanos were invited to a small gathering of friends to celebrate and enjoy private viewing in the gallery after hours.

Soula and Theo’s attention immediately went to the John Nixon exhibition of five hundred prints presented across two GG gallery areas. View the images below, better still, don’t miss the exhibition – especially if you are a graphic work lover.

John Nixon—Four Decades, Five Hundred Prints

Saturday 18 November 2023 to Monday 11 March 2024. Free entry

Printmaking was a vital part of artist John Nixon’s celebrated oeuvre of abstract art. This first comprehensive print survey reveals Nixon’s inventive use of varied techniques, which ranged from simple woodcuts and potato prints, to more complex screenprints, stone lithographs and etchings. True to the experimental spirit of his art, Nixon freely bent printmaking convention, for example by using collage, or by printing his abstract motifs onto everyday objects such as paper bags or newspapers.
