In little over a week, Fieldwork, a stunning touring exhibition from the Art Gallery of NSW, will leave the Hawkesbury.
Fieldwork - landscapes west of Sydney, can be seen at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery until Sunday, September 20.
It includes significant and seldom seen paintings and works on paper from the Art Gallery of NSW collection by artists including Lionel Lindsay, Hilda Rix Nicholas, Julian Ashton, Grace Cossington Smith, Elioth Gruner, JJ Hilder, Sydney Long, Charles Meere and Sydney Ure Smith.
As the name implies, the works were inspired by the landscapes of western Sydney, capturing areas including Kurrajong, Jamison Valley, McDonald River, Hartley, the Three Sisters, Fish River Caves and the doctors house at Windsor.
A highlight of the exhibition is Gruner's painting Spring Frost (1919).
The iconic painting is rarely taken from display at the gallery.
Gruner was a frequent visitor to Windsor, often staying in a cottage located near Windsor Court House.
Other highlights include Sydney Long's painting of St Albans (1926), WC Piguenit's depiction of the Grose titled In The Valley (1880), and Julian Ashton's A Waterhole on the Hawkesbury River (1885).
Since opening on July 18, more than 1500 people have visited the gallery to take in the exhibition.
Hawkesbury Regional Gallery opens: Monday, Wednesday to Friday 10am-4pm; and weekends, 10am-3pm.
The gallery is located at 300 George Street, Windsor, on the top level of the Deerubbin Centre. Entry is free.
