Our Field Trip is… staying indoors!

Due to a wet weather forecast, we’re holding our Sketch Club Field Trip with Vicki Luke inside the Museum.

We’ll hear from artist Vicki Luke within her current exhibition Gilgai – echo of an ideal world, followed by an inside sketching session inspired by Vicki’s large-scale depictions of wetlands.

Vicki will take us into her process and the wider project, sharing sketchbook drawings, photos and field studies of local wetlands and waterways that have been developed as part of her research.

Following the Vicki’s talk, participants will be invited to sketch responses and interpretations of Vicki’s large-scale drawings and watercolour paintings on display. For those new to our Sketch Club format, the Museum provides stools, backing boards, paper and pencils and is suitable for people of all drawing abilities.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about Vicki’s process, approach and practice throughout the event.

What to bring:

Sketchbook and drawing/watercolour materials

About the Artist

Vicki Luke is an artist based in Thurgoona whose practice revolves around the natural world and the human condition as she explores the notion of change. In recent years, her research has honed in on the Sloane's Froglet, a tiny endangered species of frog that is under siege by climate change, land degradation and urban development. Actively involved in the regional arts community, Vicki regularly exhibits, teaches and creates major public works in Albury-Wodonga.
