Ken Done Celebrates Launch of New Book at Mosman Art Gallery
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—I congratulate Mosman local Ken Done on the launch of his new publication entitled Art Design Life, which was celebrated with a special event at Mosman Art Gallery. 80-year-old Ken has been a talented painter for more than 40 years and shows no signs of slowing down. Since his first exhibition in 1980, Ken has held over 100 solo shows across the world in Europe, America and Japan. He is known as one of Australia's most recognised and well-acclaimed artists. We have all probably come across Ken's work. His timeless paintings are famous for their bright and colourful depictions of Australia, including our unique landscapes and precious wildlife. Ken's new book details his incredible career and documents his expansive art and design practice, featuring some of his most special moments. Many of us would recognise some of his earlier works such as iconic paintings of Sydney Harbour, the Great Barrier Reef and the outback. Congratulations to Ken for the success of his new book and thank you for your inspiring artwork.
