Sydney’s ‘beating heart’ revealed

Manly Art Gallery & Museum,

Mosman Art Gallery and

S. H. Ervin Gallery are showcasing

130 key works by nine

important Australian artists to

celebrate the spirit of Sydney

in a new exhibition Destination

Sydney Re-imagined.

The nine artists whose

exploration of our city form

this exhibition are Ken Done,

Adrian Feint, Ethel Carrick-Fox,

Nicholas Harding, Michael

Johnson, Robert Klippel, Roy

De Maistre, Wendy Sharpe and

Jeffrey Smart.

The galleries have collaborated

again due to

the oustanding success

of the 2015-16 exhibition,

Destination Sydney, which

attracted record attendances

of 75,000 people.

This exhibition has

been curated by art historian

Lou Klepac working

with representatives of the

three public galleries who

have chosen the works.

Katherine Roberts, Senior

Curator at Manly Art Gallery &

Museum, said the exhibition

revealed Sydney in all its glory

and its complexity and the way

artists respond to it as their

subject, as their inspiration

and as their muse.

“Its aim is to showcase

the beating heart of Sydney

through the eyes of artists,”

she said. “It also aims to highlight

the regional galleries play

in contributing to the cultural

life of the city.”

At Manly, work

by Ken Done, Adrian Feint and

Ethel Carrick-Fox will feature,

with 12 paintings by each of

the artists drawn from the

gallery and public and private

collections around the country.

“The pieces are united by

water, highlighting the beach

and harbour, with Pittwater

featuring quite a bit,” Katherine


To get the full experience

of the exhibition, Katherine

encourages art lovers to visit

all three galleries… starting

with Manly of course!
