YAVA Gallery and Arts Hub opened its latest major exhibition, which features the works of Academy Award winning Australian artist Shaun Tan.
The exhibition, ‘Another World’, is the third in a series of exhibitions which will combine multi award winning artists with complimentary local artist works to celebrate the arts sector and support the Yarra Valley region.
Mr Tan’s illustrations, sculptures and books can be viewed along with the complementary artistic works from local award-winning artist David Miller who is also a much loved children’s book author/illustrator.
Their unique and captivating approach to storytelling is displayed side by side in the exhibition Another World.
Mr Tan will exhibit original works from his book ‘The Rules of Summer’ and sculptures from his ‘The Singing Bones’, together with David Miller’s original paper sculptures from numerous children’s books.
The exhibition was opened by award winning author and chef Tony Tan on 5 December, and will be open to the public as a free exhibition from 6 December to 2 February 2020.
YAVA Gallery Director Andrew Chew said, “Having Shaun Tan in the Yarra Valley is an incredible surprise treat for all leading up to Christmas and the school holiday period.
“We’re thrilled to have his work on our walls alongside our talented local paper sculptor and author David Miller.”
Books from both of the artists will be available at the gallery and visitors are encouraged to enquire about book signings.
