Artist Talk

Town Hall Gallery is pleased to host The Hawthorn Artists Society's series of free artist talks. We've so far been very privileged to have had the likes of Graeme Drendel, Geoff La Gerche, Ann Howie and Heather Betts come through the Arts Centre, thanks to the good work of Philip Kreveld and the great team at the Artists Society. Coming up on the 16th of May the series continues with a lecture by artist Lewis Miller.

A highly awarded painter - Hugh Ramsay Portrait Prize, Archibald Winner, Sporting Portrait Prize at AGNSW, among many more - Lewis was also appointed an Official Australian Artist for the war in Iraq in 2003. His work is represented in private and public collections here in Australia and overseas. This talk provides a wonderful opportunity to meet the artist and learn about his experiences firsthand.
