Salvatore Zofrea: The Drawn Line

Manly Art Gallery & Museum


Drawing and the power of mark-making are the foundations of Salvatore Zofrea’s artistic practice. This special exhibition, which forms the backdrop to our 2022 SCMF series, explores the underlying narrative of the artist’s personal journey from Italy to the Australian landscape.

Celebrating Zofrea’s 75th year, this exhibition traces the development of the artist through drawing; from his early sketches to preliminary drawings for woodblock prints, psalm paintings, frescoes, stained glass windows and his most recent circle series of multi-panelled paintings. Presented in partnership with Orange Regional Gallery where it was shown in early 2022.
