As far as the eye can see

8 June - 28 July 2019

As far as the eye can see celebrates celebrates the contemporary topography of both landscape and printmaking. The exhibition challenges these doubly conventional themes through the work of twenty-two Australian artists whose work reflects the breadth and depth of print practice in Australia today. The artists express their individual relationships to the land through a variety of print media, describing both the vast scale and the intimate detail of our diverse natural environment and portraying Australia’s unique and varied geography.

Featuring Antonia Aitken (TAS), Raymond Arnold (TAS), G. W. Bot (ACT), Susanna Castleden (WA), Jan Davis (NSW), Gary Jolley (NSW), Locust Jones (NSW), Martin King (VIC), Judith Martinez (NSW), Clyde McGill (WA), Helen Mueller (NSW), Alice Nampitjinpa (NT),
Dorothy Napangardi (NT), Daniel O’Shane (QLD), Janet Parker-Smith (NSW), Julie Paterson (NSW), Olga Sankey (SA), Gary Shinfield (NSW), Rochelle Summerfield (NSW), Chris Tobin (NSW), Judy Watson (QLD) and Freedom Wilson (NSW).

A Blue Mountains City Art Gallery touring exhibition. This exhibition is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians.

On Belonging(s) is a reflection on how we construct our identity, connect ourselves to place and engage with our possessions, both nostalgically and idealistically, as extensions of the self.
