Collection Online

The CDU Art Collection & Art Gallery is producing online galleries of exhibitions drawn exclusively from its permanent collection.

We currently have five online galleries for 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2007 exhibitions.

November 2013 - February 2014
Drawn from the CDU Art Collection's permanent holdings, In Print 20/20 marks the 20th anniversary of Northern Editions Printmaking Studio and its predecessor printmaking workshops: the NTU Print Workshop (1993-96) and Northern Editions Printmaking Workshop (1997-2001). It celebrates two decades of prints and printmaking at Charles Darwin University.
As a "sequel survey" exhibition, In Print 20/20 will focus on works dating from approximately 2000 to the present, featuring the third (2002-2008) and fourth (2009-2013) phases of printmaking at Charles Darwin University. Significant developments during this period include: the introduction of water-based, Japanese style woodblock printing (suisai moku hanga), the production of prints in hand-bound book form and the creation of 3D hand-sewn printed multiples or sculptures.

February - July 2012
LOOK: Learning to LOOK at art in the CDU Art Collection
LOOK featured a selection of more than 70 works drawn from the CDU Art Collection in a range of media – including paintings, limited edition prints, photographs, digital collage and three-dimensional objects.  They were assembled to encourage the viewer to search for meaning and seek pleasure in a visual way: to experience art through uninhibited observation rather than verbalised narrative.

November 2010 - February 2011

In Print: Charles Darwin University Art Collection
Comprising 167 works – including lithographs, etchings, drypoints and screenprints – drawn entirely from Charles Darwin University's permanent collection of art, In Print highlighted the power and beauty of graphic work by Indigenous, non-Indigenous and Southeast Asian artists working in, or inspired by Northern Australia, many of whom have worked under the auspices of CDU’s various printmaking workshops, studios and enterprises from 1993 to the present.  
Venturing across the Far North’s cities and townships, to some of its most remote communities, the exhibition drew together a 17-year history of CDU’s principal visual art and printmaking entities: the University Art Collection, the Art School (NTU Print Workshop, 1993-96; Northern Editions Printmaking Workshop, 1997-2002) and today’s Northern Editions Printmaking Studio.

November 2009 - March 2010
The Art Collection's first exhibition, comprising 63 works drawn from the permanent collection, marked the opening of the new Chancellery, Building Orange 12, on 9 November 2009.


Gifted: Recent donations of limited edition prints by 49 contemporary Australian artists
The first in a series of exhibitions that acknowledged the art of philanthropic benefaction: the gifting of two series of limited edition prints by contemporary Australian non-Indigenous artists to the CDU Art Collection by Franck Gohier.
