LAND, RAIN & SUN
Exhibition Dates: 6 – 27 May, 2017
Exhibition Opening: Saturday 6th May, 4 – 6pm
The Charles Nodrum Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition of Australian and European landscape painting and works on paper dating from the 19th century to today, presented in collaboration with ClimARTe.
Land, Rain & Sun forms part of ART+CLIMATE+CHANGE 2017 – a program of 28 specially curated exhibitions across Melbourne and Regional Victoria, with related public programs, events and speakers that broadcast ClimARTe’s advocacy for action through the arts to restore a sustainable environment. The festival runs from 19 April – 14 May.
This exhibition forms part of a series of landscape-based group shows realised by Charles Nodrum, variously entitled Earth Sea & Sky (2009), Vista (2013), and Vista II (2014), though this time put together based on the specific prism of ecology and climate introduced by our collaborators. Selected works will be accompanied by analysis and comments from participating climate scientists Penny Whetton and Joelle Gergis, shedding light on how changing environments have been captured by artists over the centuries. An environmental approach hopes to produce new readings of the works beyond the purely aesthetic, and extend this vision in the direction of ClimARTe’s mission.
At over 100 artworks, this exhibition will be the largest and most broad ranging in the program.
Artists include Louis Buvelot, E. Phillips Fox, Russell Drysdale, Sidney Nolan, Fred Williams, Emily Kngwarreye,
James Gleeson, Edwin Tanner, Michael Shannon, Godfrey Miller, Mary Macqueen, Lily Kelly Napangardi,
Imants Tillers, Rick Amor, Margaret Worth, Guy Stuart, Kristin Headlam, David Warren, Sadie Chandler, Lucy Culliton,
and many more.
