Long time friend and director of the Art Gallery of NSW Edmund Capon opened the exhibition that marks an important shift in Olsen's paintings from the vast dry interior to Sydney's harbour and beaches.  In the excerpt of the evenings events John Olsen also reflects on his childhood spent on Sydney's shores that provides the central motivation for this beautiful collection of paintings.
