A portrait of the late Professor George Seddon (entitled “Making Sense of Place #4”) by Perth based artist Peteris Ciemitis has been accepted as a gift to the National Portrait Gallery by it’s owner, his widow Marli Wallace … who said Seddon would have been very pleased and quietly proud of the gift. “It will ensure it is on display for all to see. I have been privileged to mind it for a while.”
