Annemieke Mein: A Life's Work - A Retrospective

  • 2 Mar 2024
  • 26 May 2024
  • Gippsland Art Gallery, 70 Foster Street, Sale, VIC

Coinciding with Annemieke’s 80th birthday, this major Blockbuster exhibition will provide the most comprehensive retrospective of her work yet seen.

Annemieke Mein OAM is a Dutch-born Australian textile artist, based in Sale, Gippsland, who has drawn acclaim nationally and from abroad for her vivid recreations of Australian native fauna and flora. She was the first textile artist to be made a member of Wildlife Art Society of Australasia and the Australian Guild of Realist Artists. The subjects of her sculpted textiles range from birds, frogs and fish, through to insects such as moths, dragonflies, wasps and grasshoppers. Her fondness for insects and her highly detailed works, often greatly enlarged and showing normally invisible colours and textures, have revealed new aspects of the everyday natural world.

A Life’s Work will be a unique exhibition that will pay tribute to this greatly loved textile artist, who has inspired and influenced vast audiences over many decades.
