Walls that Talk
Walls that Talk is a place activation initiative that displays images on the front wall of Maitland Library for the whole community to enjoy and experience.
FINDING MAI (SEPTEMBER - NOVEMBER 2021)
Can you help us find our newest friend Mai? She is hidden in every scene of the latest Walls that Talk exhibition and we need your help finding out which amazing places in Maitland she is exploring and where she is hiding! You can zoom in on the images below or download the fun activity book on the right hand side of this page to play. Mai is very imaginative and she has also shared a whole lot of fun ideas and activities you might like to do from home - check out the Finding Mai Activities page on My Maitland. You can also follow #FindingMai and MyMaitland on Facebook for updates.
YOUTH WEEK COMPETITION 'RESTORE OUR EARTH' (April 2021)
The theme of this exhibition is a combination of ‘Earth Day’ and ‘Youth Week’.
Young creatives were invited to submit visual artworks around the theme of ‘Restore Our Earth’. The artworks showcase various mediums including painting, photography, sculpture and drawing. We asked each artist to describe their artworks that were displayed at Maitland Library from 16 April.
KEN DONE (November 2020 - February 2021)
Ken Done’s first solo exhibition was held in Sydney in 1980. Since then, he has held over 50 one man shows, including major exhibitions in Australia, Europe, Japan and the USA. His work has been described as the most original style to come out of Australia and his paintings are in collections throughout the world. A selection of Done’s paintings were chosen for Maitland Library’s Walls That Talk exhibition from November 2020 to February 2021.
