‘The Prodigal Son and More’ 1st April – 15th May 2017

Mon – Fri: 9 am – 5.30 pm. Sat: 10 am – 2 pm.

Radio interview, courtesy of ABC 107.9 FM. Gallery on Sturt is delighted to present an exciting collection of works by these key national artists. Arthur Boyd (1920-1999) and Sidney Nolan (1917 – 1992) were amongst Australia’s most significant and influential artists of the twentieth-century. This year 2017 is the centenary of the birth of Sidney Nolan.  Jamie Boyd (1948), son of Arthur, is the most important living artist of this remarkable Boyd dynasty of artists. The collective contribution of this family of painters, sculptors, ceramicists, poets, musicians and potters over the last century is preeminent in Australian art history and all have achieved substantial international reputations. This exhibition includes a series of etchings titled ‘The Prodigal Son‘  that revisit the series (1946-1947) for murals now in the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. Artworks have been pre-selected for exhibition at Gallery on Sturt by Jamie Boyd. All are originals, signed by the artists and available for purchase. Proudly supported by Sponsor - Escape Travel

Among Arthur Boyd’s most recognised works are the landscapes of the Shoalhaven River in New South Wales, from his years at Bundanon. In 1993, Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne gifted Bundanon on the Shoalhaven River and a parcel of other properties (1100 hectares in all) to the Australian Government. This is managed by Bundanon Trust. Many artworks from this area are represented in this exhibition, alongside landscapes from time spent at the Boyd’s Tuscan farmhouse, Il Parateio, in the village of Palaia, Tuscany.
