Also, on level 0 is “Animal Magic”, a solo show from painter Patrick Hunter. Hunter combines oil painting techniques with a graffiti style to create unique depictions of animals with human characteristics. Hunter feels, “Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world” and aims for his exhibition to highlight the importance of imagination for children.

Keep the motor running
“Keep the motor running”, is a collection of paintings depicting vintage and classic cars from artist Fiona Kain. Cars evoke memories of people, places and childhood, representing a time and place and journeys past. These paintings draw upon memories of your first car, the family car, the dream car, the car in your garage you are still trying to piece together.

An initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in association with the New South Wales Department of Education, the exhibition encourages students to create artworks for children in hospital.
