Mick Glasheen has been a pioneering force in the fields of experimental film and interactive media since the late 1960s. For the past 25 years, living on the Northern Beaches, Glasheen has drawn and painted the Hawkesbury sandstone landscape of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park with a vision of creating ar t that becomes an immersive 360 degree experience – inviting the viewer to experience original large-scale drawings of major Garigal rock engraving sites in a totally original way.
Just prior to the opening of his exhibition, Garigal Country Drawing on the Land at Manly Art Gallery and Museum on Friday 6th September 2017 Mick had a fall and broke his leg. While recovering from this, he had several small strokes. With typical resolve and determination, he is recovering and with the support of The Compassionate Circle of Mick’s friends and family he has been able to return home to his studio in Newport with 24-hour care. During this time we have seen vast improvements in his health.
The purpose of this Benefit Exhibition is importantly to raise urgently needed funds to support Mick Glasheen’s rehabilitation and, vitally, to enable him to stay at home, keep him out of Residential Aged Care, and to help finance the extra services he requires and deserves.
All income from sales of artworks will support this purpose.
