Yarra Ranges

The Ranges | 3 Perspectives

Event

Drawing from the vivid and lush landscape of the Dandenong Ranges, a place each artist once called home, the works in this exhibition showcase three distinctly different perspectives.

Be captured by the unique majesty of the ranges, seen through the eyes of these brilliant Australian landscape painters.

Mary Tonkin: Contemporary plein air landscape artist whose detailed large scale representations reflect the forest at her family’s property in Kalorama.

Fred Williams: Australia’s most iconic landscape artist redefined painting in the Australian bush during his ‘Upwey years’ from 1963-68.

Miles Evergood: An impressionist whose 1930’s Kalorama paintings are characterised by strong colours and expressive brushstrokes and use of palette knife.
