The work of contemporary landscape artist Chris Langlois is being celebrated with a major touring survey ‘Points in Time‘ now on the Manly Art Gallery and Museum. The exhibition was developed by Gippsland Art Gallery and Manly Art Gallery and Museum and will tour 6 of Australia’s best regional galleries in 2013 and 2014.
Art Almanac recently featured a review of Langlois’ work and the exhibition saying, “… his painting has oscillated from pure abstraction to relatively literal landscapes. Yet certain qualities have remained consistent: subtle use of light and space, meticulous command of paint, and a desire to work within a limited, but ever-changing, palette of tones and colours that has been his trademark since he discovered Whistler as a young man.” – Steve Meacham, Art Almanac
