Nada Hunter Still Lifes
To coincide with the Melbourne Flower Show, we have collated our Nada Hunter Sill Lifes. The small exhibition features watercolours and oils, both framed and unframed, and is viewable online and in our basement gallery.
Nada Hunter was born in 1918 at Donald, Victoria.
Nada was a WAAF, Intelligence Branch during World War II. She studied art at Hobart Technical School under Jack Carington Smith and in Paris at the Ecole Chaumiere, Atelier Libre and Acedemie Julien from 1951-52 and 1955-56 where she attended a studio every morning and commented that “the instruction was negligible but the frenetic art activity in the city in general is such that one absorbs a great deal by osmosis.” Regular exhibitor with the Victorian Artists' Society since 1952. Member of the Melbourne Society of Women Painters and Sculptors since 1982. Solo exhibitions including Latrobe University Staff Club, 1975; Kozminsky Galleries (no date) Bridget McDonnell Gallery, Hampton, 2008 and Bridget McDonnell Gallery, Carlton, 2010.
