This is the second exhibition in a series of collaborations between three Sydney public galleries – Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and the S.H.Ervin Gallery. It follows in the footsteps of the jointly presented and highly successful collaborative exhibition project, Destination Sydney.
Held over the summer of 2015-2016, Destination Sydney was unprecedented in its achievement and showcased artworks responding to the theme of Sydney as a destination for creative endeavours.
Destination Sydney: Re-imagined returns to the subject of Sydney as a source of inspiration for so many artists, who have been drawn to its unrivalled landscapes. This exhibition will present the work of nine major Australian artists whose contributions have become synonymous with the landscape of Sydney. Featured artists include Ethel Carrick Fox, Adrian Feint & Ken Done (Manly Art Gallery & Museum), Roy de Maistre, Robert Klippel & Michael Johnson (Mosman Art Gallery) Jeffrey Smart, Nicholas Harding & Wendy Sharpe (S.H. Ervin Gallery).
Please note the Gallery will be closed 24 December 2018 – 4 January 2019.
The exhibition is supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.
