A retrospective exhibition of this scale is an expensive undertaking. With over 350 etchings requiring framing, freighting to and from WA plus the costs of self publishing a new book publication, the costs add up.
We are looking for support for all areas of the retrospective, but in particular for the book publication to ensure a high standard is maintained.
From the size and shape of the art book, to the quality of the paper, printing and binding, there are many areas to compromise. In order to truly honour 50 Years of painting and printmaking, we would like to ensure this book – which may be the last for Leon – truly celebrates the work in a beautiful quality production for all to share.
This new publication will be a seminal work and celebrate Leon as a master printmaker and one of Australia’s most successful artists. It will be a hugely important publication, vital to Australian Art history.
Documenting Pericles work from 1968-2018, it charts 50 years in the life of the artist and wife Moira.
All donations will contribute to the costs of book production and shipping of key works to the state to be part of the exhibition.
Your role in supporting this project will be appreciated immensely and you will be contributing to a hugely relevant publication reflecting a pivotal period in WA art history.
Of course we will ensure several copies of the book are yours, and we would be thrilled to celebrate the book launch with you on November 9th at the Linton & Kay Gallery.
