Bush to Bay: Hinton and the Artists' Camps Exhibition

Michelle Hungerford, Camp I, 2016 acrylic and charcoal on board 91 x 91 cm

In the late 19th century, artists such as Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Henry Fulwood and others congregated around the artists' camps of Mosman Bay. It was here that a young Howard Hinton met many of these artists and he began collecting artworks, establishing a significant collection of works by some of Australia's most important impressionist painters. Now, over 100 years later, a collaboration has taken place between a group of contemporary artists from both the New England and Mosman regions, visiting and spending time in Mosman's glorious, harbour-side location to find new inspiration. This special exhibition acknowledges the legacy of Howard Hinton, and the ongoing contribution he has made to enrich our lives through his vision, support of the arts and his understanding of its cultural and social value. By bringing together works by artists from the original camp and present-day artists, viewers can participate in a new conversation with the collection, viewing it in a contemporary context.

Artworks by Angus Nivison, Michelle Hungerford, Gabrielle Collins, Elouise Roberts, Hadyn Wilson, Ashley Frost, Viola Dominello and Ana Young join with those from the original camps.
