Salvatore Zofrea: The Drawn Line, opening at Orange Regional Gallery next Friday 25 February. The exhibition will also be showing at Manly Art Gallery & Museum on 2 September – 16 October 2022.
Salvatore Zofrea: The Drawn Line is the first survey of the artist’s drawings to be held in
Australia. This exhibition presents a relatively unknown aspect of this celebrated artist’s
practice. While highly regarded as a painter and printmaker, we see throughout Zofrea’s
career his love and appreciation for drawing as a means of visual thinking and personal
expression. Drawing forms the basis and flows through all of his work. Ranging from
tender early studies of his mother’s hands, to preparatory sketches for his allegorical
Psalms series of paintings and the Appassionata woodcuts, The Drawn Line also includes
more recent renderings of the Australian bush.
A Manly Art Gallery & Museum and Orange Regional Gallery partnership exhibition.
