An exhibition of selected works from the City of Greater Geraldton Art Collection spanning seven decades.
The City of Geraldton Art Collection constitutes over 470 artworks and consists of a mixture of paintings, drawings, textiles, photography, sculpture and digital prints. There are four main areas of the Collection including the Sir Claude Hotchin’s Bequest, the Elizabeth Durack collection, the Norman Lindsay collection gifted from the Wingrove estate and a fourth area consisting of an eclectic mix of donations and purchases of traditional and contemporary Australian art
The exhibition title, “Into The Woods Alone” is based on her uncle’s worried response when she announced that she was to travel to remote villages in the mountainous region of Northern Greece where her mother and father were born, then to villages and townships in Czechoslovakia where as refugees from the Greek Civil War her family settled before arriving in Australia in late 1971.
The Geraldton Regional Art Gallery will be closed from Monday 12 May until Wednesday 13 August while the replacement of the entire air-conditioning system is completed. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to your continued support when we reopen.
