Nicholas Harding: The Theatre Sketchbooks

A unique exhibition selected from the thousands of drawings and dozens of sketchbooks created by Archibald-winning artist Nicholas Harding, as he drew actors, directors and creatives during their rehearsals and performances at the Sydney Theatre Company.

Granted access to the rehearsal room to sketch the actors and creatives behind Waiting for GodotCyrano de BergeracThe Present and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Harding also created lively portraits of actors out-of-character, including Hugo Weaving, Richard Roxburgh and Philip Quast. Harding has also drawn some of Australia’s most renowned theatre directors and production creatives. These artworks are now a vibrant legacy of the STC’s recent productions.

Harding’s original sketchbooks, displayed alongside his larger drawings, will have regular page turnings and the exhibition will coincide with the publication of the artist’s new book of theatre sketches From the Wings.
