Helen Brack

Helen attended the National Gallery Art School in Melbourne from 1945–1947, and during the 1960s gained a Graduate Diploma in Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne. She has exhibited regularly in Melbourne every two to three years since 1954, especially at Standfield Gallery from 1979 to 1991, and more recently, with Niagara Galleries. In the 1980s she designed and collaborated with the Victorian Tapestry Workshop in the making of two tapestries.

Helen’s areas of interest consider the nature and language of painting and drawing, art's relevance in the community and how we manage the conflict between popular and serious. 

Helen has worked for the CAE for almost 50 years, initially teaching painting and drawing and presented many Art based appreciation courses. She has given talks to the Christies Education Programme, at the University of Western Australia, National Gallery of Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria, and to the conservation course at the Ian Potter, Melbourne University.
