Artists of Mosman: 2088

Saturday 26 March – Thursday 21 April 2011

Each year the Artists of Mosman: 2088 exhibition features a diverse range of recent artworks produced by artists living and working in Mosman as well as members of the Mosman Art Gallery.

Mosman’s unique location, surrounded by stunning harbour foreshores and beautiful bushlands has inspired generations of artists since the late 19th century. Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton were among a number of artists who painted the area from camps at Mosman Bay and Little Sirius Cove. They established an artistic tradition which has been upheld by scores of artists, writers, and poets ever since. Other prominent artists who have been closely associated with Mosman over the years include Margaret Preston, Nancy Borlase, Ken Done, John Caldwell, Imants Tillers and Kerrie Lester.

As Mosman continues to attract and inspire its artistic community, many of their creative responses can be seen in the annual Artists of Mosman: 2088 exhibition. The exhibition includes painting, drawing, printmaking, textiles, photography, sculpture and ceramics, and many of the works are for sale.
