Gertrude is pleased to present a curated selection from the organisation’s leading series of artists’ editions at Sydney Contemporary at Carriageworks from September 8th - 11th. Drawing from the rich, nearly twenty-year history of the editions program, we are excited to offer a range of very limited pieces from the program’s significant archive especially for VIPs and fair visitors.
Established in 2002, the Gertrude Editions are an annual series of specially commissioned limited-edition works of art. The Gertrude Editions have been developed to raise funds in support of Gertrude and to promote the connection between current studio artists and previous generations of leading Australian artists who have held studios and/or exhibitions at Gertrude or contributed as a Board Member or Director.
The Gertrude Editions are held in several major private and institutional collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Museum of Old and New Art, and Monash University Museum of Art, amongst others.
Released to the public at the end of each year, the Gertrude Editions usually contain some aspect of production that reveals the hand of the artist and provides each work with a subtle variation that makes them individual.
