Olsen Irwin is thrilled to announce that two of our artists have been selected to be featured in the Destination Sydney Exhibition.
Sydney has long been a point of focus and convergence for many artists born in other parts of Australia. The beauty of the city’s bush harbour foreshores, the quality of light and palpable sense of energy and movement within the city has provided many artists an ongoing inspiration and a wealth of rich source materials from which to draw.
Each of the artists selected for this exhibition have been influenced by their experiences of living and working in Sydney that the city and its harbour have become central themes within their artistic production. Some of the artists selected were born in Sydney, but found that the city’s pictorial and poetic possibilities inspired them only after a long stint travelling abroad.
Over 140 artworks have been lent for the exhibitions with many coming from private collections making this exhibition a must see.
