Leigh Hobbs Exhibition


Leigh Hobbs exhibition - Characters from the drawing board 

In August Leigh Hobbs, the Australian Children's Laureate 2016-2017 was our guest, visiting many of our locations. To support his visit an exhibition is currently touring the state. 

This travelling exhibition takes a close look at some of Leigh Hobbs' characters, in particular, Old Tom, Horrible Harriet and Mr Chicken.

A series of panels provides information about Leigh, his art and the development of his charcters. There is also a display of treasures from Leigh's studio, including, original sketches, sketch books, art materials and illustrations.
