Group exhibition: War and Peace

April 10 - July 4

Fred Leist, Wings, 1938. Oil on board. Gift of Howard Hinton 1940. Courtesy: the artists, The Howard Hinton Collection and New England Regional Art Museum, Armidale.

War and Peace highlights works in the collection by official war artists displayed alongside an example of their war commissions loaned by the Australian War Memorial to possibly reveal an insight into how the artists were affected or changed by their war experience. The exhibition also explores the varied stories of Armidale during wartime, from storing precious paintings from the Art Gallery of New South Wales in the basement of the Armidale Teachers’ College, trench art, to the experience of Italian prisoners of war who laboured in Northern NSW. Artists include Harold Abbott, Richard Ashton, Ernest Buckmaster, A.H. Fullwood, Henry A. Hanke, Harold Herbert, Sali Herman, Nora Heysen, George W. Lambert, Fred Leist, Arthur Murch, H. Septimus Power and Arthur Streeton.

Opening night Friday 23 April.
