Nomad Art – crossing borders

01 February - 31 January 2022


Nomad art is now open at its new home in Avenel, Victoria. This year we will offer a program of practical art workshops, exhibitions and lectures at the new art complex. For information click here.


To celebrate reopening we are featuring watercolours and etchings by Anne McMaster and Jörg Schmeisser (dec).


Jörg Schmeisser

Jörg Schmeisser was born in Germany in 1942 and lived in Australia from 1978 when he was appointed Head of Printmaking and Drawing at Canberra School of Art at the Australian National University. Schmeisser’s distinguished printmaking career was informed by a restless curiosity about the perception and essence of the visual world. From the beginning, Schmeisser was inspired by travel, his imagination fired by regular experiences of the unfamiliar and unknown.


His love of travel took him to Israel, Thailand, Japan, China, USA, Europe, India and Antartica. He participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. His work is a visual travelog of his wondrous life journey in prints.

Anne McMaster

Anne is a contemporary visual artist based in Darwin, Australia. Her explorations with printmaking and watercolour mediums have led her to investigate the coastal aesthetics of coastal mangroves, coral, tide lines and sea faring objects.  Through the characteristics of using these materials and techniques Anne has incorporated the louvered window shapes found in tropical architecture to format her mark making and imagery.


Her recent research explored the notion of Drift, the motion of moving on the sea, movements in time, and elements of tidal flow. Anne uses the salty sea washes over etching plates and in her water colours representing the rhythmic tidal flows that occur daily, and is part of the natural coastal world.
