Spanning 500 years, ‘European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’ offers a breath-taking journey from the 1420s and emerging Renaissance to conclude at the height of early twentieth century post-impressionism. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity also allows visitors to experience works by painters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Turner, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Monet, direct from The Met’s collection – one of the finest collections of European painting in the world, the majority of which rarely leave permanent display in New York.

Our story is not one story, but many stories to share.
This exhibition attempts to showcase works of art that reflect the depth of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture, with other aspects of the Aboriginal condition.

Works of art by local Noongar artists such as Revel Cooper (dec.), Sandra Hill, Dianne Jones and Shane Pickett (dec.) sit loud-and-proud among those by Richard Bell, Karla Dickens, Julie Dowling and Brian Robinson to name a few of the many stellar artists in the show.

Tweed Regional Gallery | Murwillumbah, NSW
Sidney Nolan’s 1946–47 paintings on the theme of the bushranger Ned Kelly are one of the greatest series of Australian paintings of the 20th century. Nolan’s Ned Kelly series is a distillation of a complex, layered story set in the Victorian landscape and centred around a 19th century bushranger and his gang who were on the run from the police.
Landscape is a key element in the paintings—as Nolan said, “it began in the landscape and ended in the landscape”. The series also depends upon a loosely-threaded but vital, dramatic human narrative that has its catalyst with Constable Fitzpatrick and Kate Kelly 1946 in the domestic arena of the Kelly family home where a fracas occurs, and ends with The trial 1947, in a Melbourne courtroom where Ned Kelly is sentenced to death.
