“I was always like, like a magnet with my Dad, like everywhere he went I was right next to him…  He never got rid of me…”

Throughout Australia’s history, an unknown number of Indigenous children have been forcibly removed from their families.  Parents driven mad, grandparents heartbroken, siblings torn apart, language lost, and culture stripped away.

Using testimonials from the Stolen Generations, Noongar man Ian Michael invites you to listen in
on the silenced stories of this country.

Bohemians in the Bush

Bohemians in the Bush

from June 17, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until August 27, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

The Gippsland encountered by artists in the late nineteenth century was a wild and inhospitable frontierland.

In the age of Impressionism and the rise of a national school of art, Gippsland remained a remote and inaccessible region for most artists.  Those who did make the journey were confronted by obstacles at every turn, at once impeding their pathway and providing awe-inspiring subjects for their art.

Bohemians in the Bush explores the stories and art of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Gippsland, revealing the work of many artists who are comparatively little known today.

Kenneth Jack (1924—2006) captured the quintessential Australia through his paintings, drawings and prints.

Jack was renowned for intricate images of Australian cities, outback towns and vast panoramic views.  Yet another side to Jack is reflected in the works that he kept in his private collection, which reveal the intellectual and artistic challenges that he faced.

Assembled by the artist’s son David, The Kenneth Jack View presents a range of works from the artist’s own collection, many of which are previously unseen, together with key works from the Gippsland Art Gallery’s collection.
