Past Exhibitions

TarraWarra Museum of Art’s inaugural exhibition Genesis features significant and compelling examples of the three prevailing themes of Australian modernism: landscape, figuration and abstraction. Presented within the intimate proportions of the Museum’s temporary home at the Metropolitan Meat Market Art Centre, Genesis is the first of three exhibitions from the TarraWarra Museum of Art collection which chart its transition from a private to a public collection in the lead up to the opening of the Museum in late 2003.

The exhibition includes key works by artists who have been instrumental in shaping the development of modern and contemporary art in Australia art during the last fifty years, including 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.
