George Kennedy has just returned from a month long stay on King Island as part of their Artist Residency Program. Kennedy immersed himself in the local environment, using the opportunity to develop new work as well as engaging the local community through arts workshops and education programs. The unique regional environment of King Island provided a stimulating environment for Kennedy, gaining valuable personal and creative experiences around the unique aspects of the Tasmanian environment, its history and community.
Despard Gallery is proud to announce that George will be having his inaugural solo exhibition in October 2024. Kennedy will also be sharing a small selection of his new paintings created as part of the King Island residency in a ‘pop-up’ exhibition later this year.
