There is something about our landscape


14 to 30 November

A hauntingly beautiful series of paintings that evoke the harshness and beauty of the Australian Outback. This exhibition illustrates an emotional response to our unique environment, capturing the vast contradictions of our country from its rugged textures and intense colours, to its perpetual horizons and wandering livestock. With a diversity of artistic technique including oils, acrylic and natural ochres direct from the earth they portray, this is an emotive and spiritual collection from the diverse works of four contemporary landscape artists.
