Fish in Australian art opens tomorrow

Tomorrow, our new exhibition Fish in Australian art opens to the public and runs until 1 October. As a keen lover of visual arts, I’m particulary excited about this exhibition. I can’t wait to spend some time exploring the show! The exhibition features over 100 works of art and design, including pieces by celebrated artists such as William Buelow Gould, Conrad Martens, Rupert Bunny, Margaret Olley, William Dobell, Arthur Boyd, Yvonne Koolmatrie, John Olsen, John Brack, Michael Leunig, Craig Walsh and many more.

Over the past week I dropped by the exhibition space to see how the installtion was going. Here are a few snaps, with more available for viewing on Flickr.

  1. Hi,

    This is Jennifer Anderson here.
    I have found your site not so long ago, but try to read every new article as i see your
    site as one of those interesting places online (it’s not such an usual case nowadays). This week, I was discussing about ( http://anmm.wordpress.com/2012/04/04/fish-in-australian-art-opens-tomorrow/) with friends from work and
    I really want to write about it. Your site is just perfect for my article! I would like to post it in
    your site if it is okay with you- free of charge of course.

    Let me know here janifer26@gmail.com,if you interested.

    Regards
    Jennifer Anderson
