Art & Heritage
Art & Heritage Collections' work relies very much on collaboration with others - artists, scholars, various University disciplines and schools.
We have collaborated successfully with Gilbert Roe, artist and University staff member (Special Collections, Barr Smith Library), for almost six years. This collaboration has included a display of his work in the Napier Building 2008-2009, an exhibition during the SALA Festival at the University's Rumours Café in 2009 and various other art-related projects.
To mark this association, Gilbert has gifted two photographic works to the University of Adelaide Visual Art Collection.
These works are part of a series of photographic meditations concerning the beach, the sea and coastal activity as metaphors for the tide and time of human life.
Gilbert has been practising and studying photography for nearly 30 years. He exhibits widely and actively participates in the creative life of South Australia.
We thank Gilbert for his gift.
