Master landscapes of the Mornington Peninsula: 1800 to the present
An MPRG exhibition

For over 200 years, the Mornington Peninsula has attracted a roll-call of Australia’s finest landscape artists.  This unique concentration of artists to a single region has created a rare opportunity to survey some of the finest landscape works produced in the last two centuries, and in many respects, to trace the development of landscape painting in Australia. Bringing together 50 exemplary paintings, watercolours and drawings by 28 artists, from Australian and international collections and includes masterpieces such as Eugene von Guerard’s Castle Rock, Cape Schanck 1875. this landmark exhibition is the culmination of ten years of research by the MPRG into the region.

Artists profiled in the exhibition include: Louis August de Sainson, Georgiana McCrae, Eugene von Guérard, Nicholas Chevalier, Louis Buvelot, H. J. Johnstone, Girolamo Nerli, Ambrose Patterson, Arthur Streeton, Penleigh Boyd, Bernard Hall, Emma Minnie Boyd, Violet Teague, Eric Thake, Clarice Beckett, Arthur Boyd, Albert Tucker, John Perceval, Charles Blackman, Fred Williams, William Delafield Cook, Stewart MacFarlane, Lynne Boyd, Ken Smith and Rick Amor.

Zhongjian: Midway
A Wollongong City Gallery touring exhibition

Zhongjian: Midway, curated by Jin Sha, is a timely exhibition that reveals the mesh of associations and influences that operate in our trans-cultural world. This exhibition consists of works by fourteen contemporary artists from China and Australia, and features painting, sculpture, installation and video projections. Five of the artists are Chinese nationals living and working in China, four are Chinese-born artists living and working in Australia, and five identify themselves as Australian artists whose work has been closely informed by Chinese culture. Together, these artists investigate notions of traditions, globalisation and identity in their work.

Zhongjian: Midway includes work by several of China’s and Australia’s most notable contemporary artists: Guan Wei, Liu Xiao Xian, Guo Jian, Jin Sha, Xifa Yang, Sally Smart, Kate Beynon, Lionel Bawden, Laurens Tan, Julie Bartholomew, Lü Peng, Shen Shaomin, Liu Qinghe, Zhang Qing.

Beyond the Persona: Eminent Women of Victoria
Paintings by Caroline Williams

Caroline Williams Mora is a conceptual artist who focuses upon history painting, politics and portraiture. Her work questions the nature of conventions, memory and authority. This exhibition celebrates the achievements of Victorian women through portraits of twelve significant, contemporary Victorian women, painted by Melbourne artist Caroline Williams. The women depicted are active in the arts, academia, science and welfare; they are Alison Carroll, Suzanne Cory, Suzanne Dance, Dure Dara, Beatrice Faust, Rhonda Galbally, Helen Garner, Moira Kelly, Joan Kirner, Hilary McPhee, Christine Nixon and Joy Murphy Wandin. The artist, Caroline Williams, addresses psychological and social issues in her work, and in this series she seeks to reinterpret established ideas about perception, image and portraiture. As the artist states: ‘We are immensely curious about each other and, as the painted portrait is a re-presentation of an individual rather than the “truth” of a photograph, it frees the viewer to look, observe and respond to the sitter in an uninhibited manner.’

Open Tuesday - Sunday 10:00 am - 5:00 pm (last admission 4.45pm)
Admission Fee: $4 adults / $2 concession
Closed Mondays and some public holidays
Open Labour Day and Easter Monday, closed Good Friday, Open Anzac Day from 12 noon to 5pm, Open Queens Birthday
