Can­berra Mu­seum and Gallery (CMAG) is com­mem­o­rat­ing two decades of col­lect­ing with an ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing the breadth of the Can­berra re­gion’s art. Staged from 24 March to 17 June, the pre­sen­ta­tion fea­tures his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary works by more than 100 es­tab­lished and emerg­ing artists in­clud­ing Vivi­enne Binns, Imants Tillers, Janet Daw­son, Ge­orge Git­toes, Ja­nenne Ea­ton, eX de Medici and Peter Maloney. CMAG’s col­lec­tion is man­aged by the gallery on be­half of the Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment, and fea­tures a di­verse spread of paint­ing, sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, print­mak­ing, draw­ing, dig­i­tal art, ce­ram­ics, glass, tex­tiles, met­al­ware and jew­ellery. A large-scale sculp­tural com­po­nent is on dis­play at Gallery 4 on Civic Square, and can be viewed 24 hours a day through­out the ex­hi­bi­tion.
