- An exhibition of stunning traditional icons, contemporary religious art, replicas of Renaissance art, and more, will open at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture in Canberra from Friday 12 to Sunday 21 March
The upcoming ‘Icons and Contemporary Art’ exhibition will open at the Charles Sturt University Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture (ACC&C) in Canberra from Friday 12 to Sunday 21 March.
The exhibition of works by artist and iconographer Mr Michael Galovic will showcase selected examples of all the streams of art he has been cultivating over the last 30 years. The artist is looking forward to seeing all of these works exhibited together.
ACC&C corporate services and events officer Dr Lauren Bartley said, “This will be the first time all these art works will be displayed together.
“Together, they provide a unique collection of traditional icons, contemporary religious art, replicas of Renaissance art, a selected body of works on Uluru, and on the theme of ‘Icarus’.”
Mr Galovic was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and graduated from the Belgrade Academy of Applied Arts in 1974. He began painting icons in 1970 under the influence and guidance of his stepfather, himself a painter, conservator, and restorer of old icons and frescos in Serbia.
Following an international career in tourism and as an interpreter and translator, Mr Galovic moved to Australia in 1990 and became a full-time artist and iconographer.
Since then, his work has been exhibited in shows throughout Australia and the world, and he has completed commissions for numerous private collectors, more than one hundred churches, and institutions such as colleges, universities, spiritual centres and libraries.
The exhibition will be open daily from 10.30am to 3.30pm from Friday 12 to Sunday 21 March in the Chapel of the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, 15 Blackall Street, Barton, ACT.
All works will be available for sale during the exhibition.Read articles about Mr Galovic’s work.
