Past Exhibition

Gesture and geometry

Using the intimate proportions and accessible site of the museum’s temporary home at the Metropolitan Meat Market Art Centre, a series of rotating exhibitions from the collection has been devised by Maudie Palmer, in order to chart the transition from a private to a public collection, leading up to the opening of the museum at TarraWarra in late 2003.

The TarraWarra Museum of Art’s inaugural exhibition demonstrated cogent examples of the three prevailing themes of Australian modernism: landscape, figuration and abstraction. The exhibition included key works by many of the mainstays of Australian modern art during the last fifty years, namely Howard Arkley; Ralph Balson; Charles Blackman; Peter Booth; Arthur Boyd; John Brack; Grace Cossington Smith; Rosalie Gascoigne; Robert Jacks; Sidney Nolan; John Olsen; John Perceval; Margaret Preston; Jeffrey Smart; Guy Stuart; Edwin Tanner; Albert Tucker; Tony Tuckson; Brett Whiteley and Fred Williams.
