Earthrowl Exhibit

The Gawler Gallery is currently exhibiting a collection of etchings on loan from the Earthrowl Family. The etchings are by artist Eliab George Earthrowl (1878-1967) and chronicle his journeys through Europe.

Permanent examples of the artist's work are held in the Tate Gallery in London and in galleries in Los Angeles and Toronto. Eliab was commissioned by the British Teachers Union to create a bust to commemorate the passing of UK legislation limiting childhood labour in factories - circa 1903.

A miniaturised copy of the original bust titled "The Half Timer" is on display in the gallery along with the etchings and other artefacts created by the artist. The painting below depicts John Earthrowl as an infant, grandson of the artist and current guardian of the collection.
