Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is proud to present the first major retrospective of one of Australia's most innovative female metal sculptors, April Glaser-Hinder. One of many Australian artists who have proved more well-known overseas than at home, her work is held by many institutions in Switzerland, where she lived for many years, and Germany; and she has won several major European awards for sculpture including first prize at the Biennale Dantesca in Ravenna, Italy. She now lives in Cootamundra, close to where she grew up on her grandparents' property at Bethungra.

April Glaser-Hinder: Works 1970-2000 presents a survey of the artist's work across a wide range of different media, including sculpture in bronze and steel, painting and installation. The exhibition draws upon Wagga Wagga Art Gallery's own extensive collection of April's work, and also includes pieces borrowed from public and private collections around Australia, including the Australian Catholic University.

The broad scope of this exhibition has enabled the subtle yet distinctive qualities of April's many series of sculptures in steel and bronze to be brought out to their fullest extent, complemented by the works on canvas. Much of this work is, at first glance, minimal and even geometrical, with a focus on simple and elegant forms; but a lyrical and romantic spirit lies beneath, and a quiet meditation on the essence of things.
