Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Step inside the world of Winter, where ice and snow become the harbingers of wonder and mystery.

Winter draws on a range of works from the Gallery’s permanent collection to explore the psychological and aesthetic dimensions of the darkest season.  Through these works we experience winter not just as a seasonal chill but a complex and compelling state of mind.

Winter showcases a diverse range of works spanning painting, printmaking, photography and ceramic.  While cumulatively exploring the condition of being cold, each work explores the individual facets of the season through means that are unique and engaging.

The exhibition features works by Raymond Arnold, Judy Dorber, William Breen, Kaye Green, Hiroe Swen, Gail Nichols and Stephen Wickham, aside others.

Bohemians in the Bush

Bohemians in the Bush

from June 17, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until August 27, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

The Gippsland encountered by artists in the late nineteenth century was a wild and inhospitable frontierland.

In the age of Impressionism and the rise of a national school of art, Gippsland remained a remote and inaccessible region for most artists.  Those who did make the journey were confronted by obstacles at every turn, at once impeding their pathway and providing awe-inspiring subjects for their art.

Bohemians in the Bush explores the stories and art of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Gippsland, revealing the work of many artists who are comparatively little known today.

Kenneth Jack (1924—2006) captured the quintessential Australia through his paintings, drawings and prints.

Jack was renowned for intricate images of Australian cities, outback towns and vast panoramic views.  Yet another side to Jack is reflected in the works that he kept in his private collection, which reveal the intellectual and artistic challenges that he faced.

Assembled by the artist’s son David, The Kenneth Jack View presents a range of works from the artist’s own collection, many of which are previously unseen, together with key works from the Gippsland Art Gallery’s collection.
