DESCRIPTION

Art galleries are often known for their key ‘masterpieces’ - the iconic works of art that people become familiar with and associate with that gallery. The majority of the collection is often hidden from public view in storerooms, yet these works of art warrant display as regularly as iconic works.

This exhibition features works from prominent Australian artists including Fred Williams, Charles Blackman, Brett Whiteley, John Coburn, Margaret Preston, Kitty Kantilla, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, as well as contemporary artists Gloria Petyarre and Ildiko Kovacs.

This exhibition is a perfect opportunity to get acquainted with the lesser known works alongside the more renowned works of art from the collection.
