It might be easy to forget today that the SkyWhale isn’t the only piece of art paid for by the centenary, but it is not!
There are other things!
This is one of them, and it’s pretty cool too!
Knowing that someone has painted a portrait of the Soup Kitchen Lady makes me very happy.
“Faces of Canberra” is a series of portraits by Canberra artist Barbara van der Linden, depicting the people of Canberra who make it an interesting and unique place to live.
This 3 year Canberra Centenary Project consists of around 25 paintings and is a celebration of these people and the contribution they have made to the Canberra Community.
The “Faces of Canberra” exhibition is now on at M16 Artspace, until 26 May, 2013.
