Ever Present | photographs from the collection 1850–1975
a QAGOMA touring exhibition.
23 November 13 – 2 February 14
Images from photography’s early years have a peculiar temporality. They evoke a seemingly remote past through old-fashioned clothing and poses, as well as often unfamiliar customs and geographies. But they also deliver the past to us in a very immediate and familiar way. Through photography, the past is always with us — it is ‘ever present’.
This exhibition, drawn from Queensland Art Gallery’s historical collections, presents works by unknown nineteenth-century photographers alongside iconic images by twentieth century masters such as Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Diane Arbus.

Lynley Dodd: A Retrospective
A Tauranga Art Gallery travelling exhibition
30 November 2013 – 09 February 2014
Out of the gate
and off for a walk
went Hairy Maclary
to Rockhampton Art Gallery!
Rockhampton Art Gallery is proud to present Lynley Dodd: A Retrospective. This exhibition showcases a collection of 59 original drawings from Dame Lynley’s popular children’s books, including the Hairy Maclary series, the Schnitzel Von Krumm series, Slinky Malinki, and Scarface Claw.
A celebration of Dame Lynley’s work to date, this exhibition also includes drawings from her first work dating back to school days, through to the most recent publication Hairy Maclary, Shoo.
Dame Lynley is a universally popular artist and over five million copies of Hairy Maclary alone have been printed, sold and translated into several languages. This little dog is an international character, but it is creator, Lynley Dodd, who is the magic behind these stories and this exhibition.
