Your Collection: Dobell and his contemporaries

16 October - 6 December

This exhibition features key works by William Dobell and his contemporaries from the gallery's collection. These works are supplemented by loans from the Art Gallery of New South Wales and a selection of holdings promised to the gallery as part of a bequest from local collector Dr Caleb Firkin and his late wife Shirley Firkin. Alongside Dobell, artists include Irvine Homer, Thomas Gleghorn, Sidney Nolan and Arthur Boyd.

A gallery exhibition project curated by Rob Cleworth and Meryl Ryan.
