This retrospective showcase of much-admired artist and teacher Ian Gardiner (1943-2008) features colourful etchings, linocuts, mono-prints, woodcuts and woodblock prints.

Bold, abstract and powerful interpretations of the human body are exhibited alongside stunning landscapes, many reflecting Gardiner’s lifelong passion for travel.

America, Italy and Japan are redolent in his art with later works highlighting the landscapes of Victoria, including the undulating hillsides of Somers on the Mornington Peninsula, expressed in painterly oil pastels.

A Life In Print is drawn primarily from a generous donation to the Whitehorse Art Collection from the artist’s estate in 2015.

This exhibition is curated by guest curator Rodney James.
