Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay

An exhibition exploring the generation of artists that lived at, and were inspired by, the area

The spectacular views from Sydney’s Lavender Bay have inspired generations of artists who have celebrated its great beauty. In the 1970s and early 80s the waterfront enclave became a bayside bohemia and home to some of Sydney’s most recognisable and celebrated artists. These include Brett Whiteley and Peter Kingston, along with their neighbours and friends Tom Carment, Philip Cox, Joel Elenberg, Robert Jacks, Rollin Schlicht, Martin Sharp, Garry Shead and Tim Storrier.

This exhibition will feature rarely seen paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and experimental film from private and public collections. They’ll be shown alongside interviews with the artists whose relationships and connections made Lavender Bay such an extraordinary hub of creative output.



Every day, 10am to 5pm

Saturday 1 September to Sunday 25 November 2018


Adult: $12.00
Concession/Child: $8.00
