Helen Lucas joins artist Ernestine Tahedl this evening as part of the Ways of Seeing Gallery Event line-up. Join two internationally-acclaimed artists for an illuminating conversation about Helen’s artist trajectory from the 1970s up until today.

Helen Lucas was the subject of Donna Davey’s film, Helen Lucas: Her Journey: Our Journey, which chronicles Helen’s path from darker earlier works in her formative years, to her glorious floral paintings. Margaret Laurence, a personal friend of Helen’s remarked about her art in the film: “The affirmation of life, in the midst of pain, is the story of your art, my friend.”

Helen Lucas’ large-scale florals are on display throughout the Aurora Cultural Centre from December 1-  29, 2018.
