Ron Tandberg was a renowned artist and political cartoonist who won 11 Walkley Awards during his 45-year career at The Age newspaper. Sadly Ron passed away in January this year aged 74, following a short illness. A resident of Queenscliff since 1996, Ron took great pleasure in the environment there. He enjoyed the abundant birdlife, pier, boats in the bay and swimming almost daily at the beach; as well as the many conversations with the people he met while out on his regular walks. Celebrate the late Ron Tandberg’s famed artwork, as part of the Borough of Queenscliffe’s Artists’ Walk. The Walk highlights the works of celebrated artists and photographers who are associated with the Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale region.
The Queenscliff Library will host an exhibition of Ron’s artwork, including a series of short videos of Ron discussing the creation of his famous caricatures.
