John Mead sculpture for this year's Gertrude Edition image

The Gertrude Editions are a series of new, limited edition works of art, released annually on the occasion of the Gertrude Studios exhibition.

The Gertrude Editions have been developed to raise funds in support of Gertrude Contemporary, and to promote the connection between current studio artists and previous generations of leading Australian artists who have held studios and/or exhibitions at Gertrude Contemporary.

The 2010 Gertrude Edition has been specially commissioned and generously donated by John Meade and Sutton Gallery, Melbourne.

Comprising a new sculptural work by John Meade in a limited edition of 50, the 2010 Gertrude Edition consists of a hand-cast Hydrostone spine, inset with polyethylene bristles, on a steel base.
