Introducing Mud for National Gallery of Australia Collection

Mud Australia’s limited edition trio of vessels has been inspired by the Gallery’s Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now exhibition in Canberra. Part One is open until 4 July 2021.

The Know My Name exhibition is a commitment and a call to action to celebrate the work of all women artists with an aim to enhance understanding of their contribution to Australia’s cultural life.

In the spirit of acknowledging the achievements of women artists, these pieces have only passed through the hands of our women makers.

The soft colours and fine hand painted outlines on these pieces are inspired by the works of Australian painter and printmaker Margaret Preston.
