About the exhibition

Nadrasca exhibitionArt 17 celebrates the fresh and highly individual visions of eight artists from the dynamic Nadrasca Community Art Program.

Established in 1967 in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Nadrasca’s purpose is to establish and develop a range of services for people with a disability.

Nadrasca has evolved over time to develop an impressive art program where participants explore different art styles and experiment with a range of materials.

The program is overseen by well-regarded artist Ginny Grayson who has been the recipient of numerous awards including the 2008 Dobell Prize for Drawing.

This exhibition highlights Maroondah City Council’s commitment to celebrating the creative achievements of artists at all levels. The passion and dedication to making displayed by the Nadrasca artists here is inspiring.

Visitors to the exhibition will see works based on iconic Pop Art paintings by Andrea Marchetti, vibrantly coloured architectural drawings by Dean Grundy, a suite of gestural paintings by Janette McDonald, and an intricately layered series of landscapes by June Patterson. There is much humour in the exhibition too, including Mark Meehan’s drawings of friendship groups, and Elroy Hendricks’s series of works strongly influenced by cartooning.
