In 1964, 34 year old Sydney-based painter Naomi Lewis was a proud finalist of the Archibald Prize. 50 years later in 2013, and with a history of her distinctive free-form art hanging throughout many Australian buildings including the Qantas first class lounges, The Hyatt in Canberra and St Vincent’s Hospital, this talented artist was diagnosed with vascular dementia.
Last year, the artist - Naomi Lewis - passed away, leaving behind a rich body of work which will furnish an exhibition in her honour at the Workshop Arts Centre in Willoughby, running from 11 to 28 April.
Her daughter, Michelle McEwing who is a professional matchmaker for the Jewish community, says her mother would have wanted her final show to benefit a charity and as such they have teamed up with the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing at UNSW which will receive proceeds from the exhibition.
