Destination Sydney: The natural world is the third (and final) iteration of the Destination Sydney series, developed and presented by Manly Art Gallery & Museum, Mosman Art Gallery and S.H. Ervin Gallery.
The first two exhibitions featured well known Australian artists whose landscape visions of Sydney changed our perception of the city. Under the initial guidance of curator Lou Klepac, the two previous exhibitions of nine artists each showed the wide range and complexities of landscape paintings and demonstrated their popularity in Australian art.
Presenting the works of nine leading Australian artists all connected by their concern for organic forms and/or the environment., Destination Sydney: the natural world features the work of key Australian artists Jennifer Keeler-Milne, Juz Kitson and Bronwyn Oliver at S.H. Ervin Gallery. At Manly Art Gallery and Museum you’ll discover the work of Merran Esson, Fiona Lowry and Joan Ross and at Mosman Art Gallery you’ll encounter the work of Janet Laurence, Caroline Rothwell and Robyn Stacey.
This exhibition now brings the series up to date and showcases a broader range of media to include painting, photography, digital media sculpture and ceramics. All but one of the artists is living and in a nod to contemporary curatorial thinking and practice, all of the artists are female.
Each of the artists has created works that are synonymous with the natural world, in new and innovative ways. The intention to show artists whose interests are in organic forms and nature but with the added analytical appreciation and understanding of the environment.
