The Elliot Eyes Collection: A Passion Shared

August 1 - October 4

The Elliott Eyes Collection of contemporary art is usually housed in a private Victorian terrace house in Erskineville, Sydney NSW. The ever-growing art collection, currently numbered at just over 300 works (sculpture, painting and ceramics) focuses mainly on Australian and New Zealand art, but also includes work by German, Belgium, American, South African and English artists.

Motivated by the realisation that once works become part of a private collection they can easily be ‘lost’ to public view, the collectors Gordon Elliott and Michael Eyes believe that sharing the works in their collection is imperative to the work. For this exhibition the collectors have generously offered MRAG access to curate an exhibition specifically for Maitland from their entire art collection.
