Well known local artist Rose Shepard will be exhibiting in G-space gallery at the Arts and Media building NMIT. This exhibition is curated by Bachelor of Art students Kate Yolland and Leah Wald.

The exhibition titled Mythifying Myth is a selection of drawings exploring myth in historical narrative using fine art methods and processes. Shepard is using the acclaimed story of her ancestors; Captain James and Eliza Fraser who survived the shipwreck of the Stirling Castle off the East Coast of Australia in 1836 as an example.

Shepard says:
Drawing, through process, is a visual narrative, a mythology of line as image. As a pictorial act it is symbolically linked to an individual’s personal mythology. To draw is to record a moment of thought, the mark becomes a trace in the physical world of the narrative of oneself.
