Join us for an audience with one of Australia's most beloved cultural commentators, Betty Churcher AO as she talks about her most recent publication, Australian Notebooks.

In Australian Notebooks, Betty Churcher revisits some of the artworks she most cherishes—a seminal Picasso, early works of the Heidelberg School, a striking portrait by Lucien Freud—and invites us to look afresh at the treasures that can be found in Australian galleries.

Through her own accomplished sketches Betty draws out the particular charm and context of each piece, and her engaging insights bring the artworks to life. With gorgeous full-colour reproductions, this is a book to turn to again and again for inspiration, solace and delight.

Betty Churcher AO is one of Australia’s most loved cultural commentators. A Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, she was director of the Art Gallery of Western Australia and of the National Gallery of Australia. She has written several acclaimed books, including Notebooks and The Art of War; has been an art critic for The Australian and has written and presented successful television art programs such as ‘Take Five’ and ‘Hidden Treasures’. She is an associate and graduate of the London Royal College of the Arts and gained a Master of Arts from the Courtauld Institute of Art at the University of London.
