Before Tracy Exhibition
Monday 24 November – Sunday 25 January
Darwin in 1974 was free and easy with good-humoured friendly locals living relaxed lifestyles. The 'big country town' was colourful with elevated homes, lush tropical gardens of palms, frangipani, bougainvillea and an abundance of wildlife.
This exhibition draws on the collections of the Northern Territory Library to create an upbeat picture of Darwin before the destruction wreaked by Cyclone Tracy.
Paintings by Judy Cassab
Judy Cassab was born in Austria in 1920 to Hungarian parents. She is one of Australia's best known portrait artists, twice winning the prestigious Archibald Prize. Cassab is also a distinguished landscape artist, drawing on her European aesthetic and training to produce stunning works of the Australian landscape. The Central Australian landscape captivated her and was the subject of many of her artworks.
Cassab wished to see more of her Northern Territory landscapes in public collections in the Territory and, through her son and fellow artist John Seed, arranged in 2014 to gift three of her works to the Northern Territory Library: Early Morning Rainbow Valley, 1985, Lagoon Ormiston, 1992 and Blue Night Rainbow Valley, 2004. We thank Judy for her wonderful gift.
