Sandra Winkworth's beautiful exhibition 'Sleeping Beauties' opened last Thursday night.

Sandra has deconstructed abandoned, decaying books and re-worked them to hold colourful studies drawn from the thousands of birds stored in the Macleay collection at the University of Sydney.

The works draw you in with their delicate beauty yet lead you consider decay, destruction, extinction...

























































Thanks to all of you who came along to support an interstate artist exhibiting here in Melbourne for the first time!

The Exhibition continues until December 4th.
