For over five decades he has produced works of great originality and vision that have informed a new vernacular of the Australian landscape. William Robinson: Genesis brings together a selection of more rarely seen works alongside those that have been exhibited more widely, allowing the viewer to clearly see the development of’ distinctive use of colour and the artist’s move towards the multidimensional perspective for which his large landscape paintings are so acclaimed.

Three light-filled floors showcase major exhibitions of Indigenous masters, established artists and new talent. The ground breaking Collectors’ Gallery is dedicated to museum-quality works from Australia’s leading Indigenous artists.
To Aug 12 New Tradition by Charmaine Pwerle. Charmaine, daughter of Barbara Weir and granddaughter of Minnie Pwerle, hails from one of Aboriginal art’s great painting dynasties. It is tempting to look at Charmaine’s artworks in light of her famous relatives, however her art demands attention in its own right. It makes its own statements. Charmaineís subject matter draws on stories passed down for generations, but approaches it in a wholly different fashion than her grandmother to whom she is so often compared. This latest body of work is truly both traditional but also stands up against the best of contemporary art. Charmaine is defining a new tradition for Aboriginal art. Join us at Kate Owen Gallery for this memorable show.

Also, One Man’s Treasure: Geoff Harvey – known as an inventive sculptor working with found objects, Geoff Harvey has created a new series of assemblages which reflect upon his fascination with the architecture of worship.

All convey a dignity and clarity of proportion that transcend their humble origins. Together in this installation they speak of an overriding humanity.

Also, Makes Sense Together by Western Sydney-based collaborators Hayley Megan French and Carla Liesch showing a collection of hand-painted a-frame signs. These signs drew their inspiration from a bygone era in Auburn – a collection of signs now located around the corner from the Peacock Gallery, in Ray Marshall Reserve. These new signs in Makes Sense Together are a meditation on place and community. They do not name places, but rather speak to a community that exists in the present, and where we want to be in the future. As a collection, the signs populate the gallery, bringing together stories, experiences and aspirations of place in Western Sydney as the artists navigate building their own genuine sense of connection.
