A Bird in the Hand!
Bob Graham:
A Retrospective

Sat 17 May – Sun 24 August
Gallery 5

Bob Graham is one of Australia’s most eminent authors. His picture books, loved by generations of families, have won national and international awards throughout his 30-year career.
This exhibition explores and celebrates his creative practice.

A unique opportunity to see precious
sketch books, manuscripts, memorabilia,
and illustrations from books including Greetings from Sandy Beach; Max; Let’s Get a Pup; and How to Heal a Broken Wing. These works and objects have been carefully selected from the artist’s studio and from the Lu Rees Archives, University of Canberra, a treasure trove of Australian children’s literature.
