Goulburn Regional Art Gallery


Australian Still Life - not just another bowl of flowers

12 December 2012 - 19 January 2013


With works drawn from the collections of GRAG, several other regional galleries and private owners, this exhibition looks back over some of Australia’s still life artists, as far as eighty years ago and right up to the present day. Still life studies have taught many students the art of observation; from very representational work through to abstract portrayals it is also very often the composition or an artist’s skill in arranging the objects in the work which make it beautiful.
With a range of artists including Grace Cossington Smith, Alison Rehfisch, Brian Dunlop, Pam Tippett and Angus McDonald, this exhibition shows the variety of techniques and styles used by Australian artists in this genre.

Opening Friday 14 December at 6pm
