ART OF A NATION DISPLAY
ONE of the most significant exhibitions showcasing the Australian landscape will premiere in Townsville today.
The Country and Western exhibition will be on display at the Perc Tucker Gallery, and will feature works by some of the nation’s leading artists.
Gallery services manager Shane Fitzgerald said the show featured a captivating collection of Australian landscapes, which painted a picture of the beauty, scale and harshness of our country.
He said the exhibition, developed by leading curator Gavin Wilson in collaboration with the gallery, explored how artists revered perceptions of the national landscape over the past 25 years.
Community and Culture Committee Chair Sue Blom said the exhibition was another triumph for the gallery.
“Country and Western follows up the astonishingly successful WOW, World of WearableArt exhibition,” Ms Blom said.
The exhibition will be held until September 20. A free curator tour will be presented from 11am tomorrow.
