Back by popular demand, Brett 'Mon' Garling will be exhibiting his artworks at Dundullimal Homestead – National Trust during November 2019, December 2019 and January 2020.
Garling’s first exhibition at Dundullimal Homestead was greatly admired and attracted many visitors.
Renowned for his landscape paintings of rural NSW, and his large scale bronze sculptures, Brett Mon Garling is an award-winning artist influenced by childhood experiences in Lightning Ridge, Narrabri and Dubbo. The collection of works on display at Dundullimal Homestead – also an iconic feature of the Dubbo community – will depict local landscapes and scenes. All of the artworks will be for sale.
“We are thrilled to open the Shed at Dundullimal for the purposes of showcasing Brett Mon Garling’s beautiful paintings,” said Karen Hagan, the National Trust’s Manager of the Dundullimal Homestead. “This is a wonderful opportunity to interlock a celebration of place through art and heritage.”
Garling, a multi-award winning Australian plein-air landscape artist, prefers painting in situ being physically immersed in the landscape because he feels it gives his paintings a greater sense of authenticity and life, despite the many challenges it presents compared with painting in the comfort of a studio.
“The quality of the light changes rapidly in outside settings requiring the artist to work quickly to capture the moment,” says Garling “and the weather can be harsh, sometimes it is so cold that you lose sensation in your fingers.”
The exhibition is available to view when the property is open to the public: Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 3pm.
This is a free event and everyone is welcome.
