Homestead’s new owners and Books Illustrated are celebrating the history
of Dromkeen and children’s literature with the opening of an exhibition
of The John Barrow Collection of Australian Children’s Book Illustration on Sunday December 7.
This will be the first showing of the John
Barrow collection which includes original artworks by some of
Australia’s well-known illustrators including Graeme Base, Ann James, Alison Lester, Bob Graham, Terry Denton, Jane Tanner, Julie Vivas and many more.
The collection features work from the modern classic era of Australian
Children’s Literature, 1980 - 2004. This is an opportunity for
creators, publishers, booksellers, teachers, librarians and other
children’s literature enthusiasts to revisit Dromkeen, reminisce
gain insight into the future vision for the homestead.
