BETH CROCE – Bioperspective
Beth Croce is a medical illustrator who crosses the boundaries to fine art, tattoo art, performing arts and jewelry – from a biological perspective.
Beth will inspire you to question “Where can your art take you?”

Storm in a Teacup featuring paintings, works on paper, photographs, ceramics, sculpture and installations that reflect on tea drinking in Australia. Works range from the traditional work of E. Phillips Fox and Arthur Streeton to the contemporary installation of The Hotham Street Ladies.
Ways to draw: A selection from the Permanent Collection by Betty Churcher. Through five broad themes the works of many of Australia’s most revered artists are brought together and reveal why an artist reaches for a pencil, a pen, a brush or an etching tool: Drawing as information; Drawing as an idea; Drawing as a fleeting gesture; Drawing as a study and Drawing for the love of drawing. Artists include John Brack, Fred Williams, Russell Drysdale and William Dobell.
