Treasures of Australian Art 1890 to 1950

14th July to 30th September 06:00 pm - 12:00 pm

The Howard Hinton Collection, in the sheer breadth of its cover of Australian art from the 1880s to the 1940s, is the only collection of its kind in regional Australia.

Howard Hinton, an avid collector of art and visitor of artists’ studios, developed his collection for the purpose of encouraging artists, educating students, and for the benefit and enjoyment of the public. He first donated works to the Armidale Teachers College in 1929 and, by the time of his death in 1948, had given away over 1,200 works.

The Collection reflects Hinton’s early love for Victorian travel paintings as well as respect for the conventions of Australian landscape art. The Lindsay family is strongly represented as is Streeton, Roberts, Gruner, Hilder, Murch and Feint.

Indo Pop: Indonesian Art from APT7

1st December to 17th February 06:00 pm - 12:00 pm

‘Indo Pop: Indonesian Art from APT7’ presents a group of artists who were a central feature of the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s flagship 2012 exhibition, ‘The 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art’.

In the late twentieth century, Indonesia lived through significant social and political changes that saw the country emerge from the militaristic government of the Suharto era (1967–98), to become the largest economy in South-East Asia. Since the 1970s, groups of contemporary artists in Indonesia have banded together to challenge social, political and economic structures as well as the arts establishment, creating a powerful voice of protest and criticism in their works.

BVRG is the only venue outside of Queensland to present the exhibition.

Etched in Stone

24th May to 2nd December 12:00 am - 12:00 am

Eden Killer Whale Museum’s exhibition Etched in Stone provides a local perspective on the stories behind the names of the First World War servicemen who are commemorated on Eden’s Cenotaph.

While memorials honour the names of service personnel, space prevents individual stories being told. The Fallen have always been given a special place in history, but what of the men who returned home physically and emotionally changed forever? Etched in Stone tries to understand the experience of some of Eden’s 122 First World War servicemen – the courageous and the deserters, the young and the old, the loss or survival of brothers, those who went on to serve in the Second World War and those who never made it out of Australia the first time around.
