The highly successful Arkley survey at TarraWarra concluded in February (for details, see 2015). Several of the early works shown there were offered for sale by Kalli Rolfe at the ‘Spring 1883’ event at the Windsor Hotel in August: see details below. And a further 8 ‘white’ works on paper were donated during the year to the Castlemaine Art Gallery: see now ‘White’ works on paper (c.1974-78), nos.144, 149, 159, 172, 228, 236, 242 and 245.
At the end of August, one of the key suburban interiors from the 1992 ‘Mix’n Match’ show at Tolarno, Mod Style 1992, set a new record auction price at Sotheby’s in Sydney.
