Windswept Farm - Dorrit Black
The Pepper Street Arts Centre, 558 Magill Road, Magill is an arts and cultural initiative of the City of Burnside which supports creative endeavour and excellence promotes arts appreciation and education and provides for social engagement across the artistic and wider community.
From Friday 22 January to Friday 12 February 2021, the Pepper Street Arts Centre is hosting a Summer Pop Up Exhibition featuring a selection of painting, printmaking, textiles and jewellery for visitors to browse and enjoy.
As part of the exhibition, Windswept Farm, a colour linocut on thin grey laid paper by Dorrit Black dated 1937 will be on display. A Magill based artist, Dorrit Black (1891 – 1951) contributed significantly to modernist art. Ms Black established the Modern Art Centre in Margaret Street, Sydney in 1931; a gallery which was devoted to modernism and one of the first galleries to be established by a woman.
On show during the exhibition will be the Pepper Street arts library book, Dorrit Black by Tracey Lock-Weir.
In celebration of Dorrit Black, the Pepper Street café, the Dorrit Coffee Shop will have apple muffins on special as a fun ode to her favourite recipe 'Hulda's Apple Cake'. A copy of the original recipe has been generously provided by a family member and will be on show in the coffee shop.
The exhibition is free to enter and open during Arts Centre opening hours which are 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday to Friday and 12 pm to 5 pm Saturday.
