April Hague

16th March – 2nd April 2018
Main Corner Foyer

April Hague is an emerging artist, based in Mt Gambier whose practices are focused on figurative work and portraiture.

The body of work created for this exhibition, explores feminist themes, such as the empowerment of women in today’s society, their roles and the significance of these roles.

The artist has painted a series of detailed ink and wash portraits that creatively depict women from varied walks of life: mothers, sisters, daughters, and partners. They are artists, teachers, health professionals, musicians and many of these things simultaneously.

These are women who have inspired her, either through personal connection or through other forms such as their songwriting, and the works also celebrate the transformative power of female friendship.

The official opening party for this exhibition will take place Friday 23 March inconjunction with the Fringe Liftoff Street Party.
