New England artists inspired by Harbour views...
Discover new works created by regional artists in response to Sydney’s artist camps of the nineteenth century and iconic works which depict them.
This exhibition brings together works from NERAM’s famous Howard Hinton Collection and from the Art Gallery of New South Wales collections with new artworks created by these four New England-based artists who revisited the sites of those artist camps and found inspiration there, even though these locations had changed quite dramatically in the past 125 years.
The young Howard Hinton arrived in Sydney in the late nineteenth century and spent a lot of time staying in the artist’s camps around Cremorne and present day Mosman where he met artists such as Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton and Julian Ashton. The paintings by these artists that he donated to the Armidale Teachers College are some of the finest works in the Howard Hinton Collection such as Tom Robert’s iconic painting Mosman’s Bay.
The exhibition has been developed by guest curator Sandra McMahon and includes works by Angus Nivison, Gabrielle Collins, Elouise Roberts and Michelle Hungerford alongside paintings by Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Julian Ashton and A. Henry Fulwood.
