This exhibition presents a selection of landscape paintings collected by the Rural City of Wangaratta over the last 40 years including works by John Colin Angus, Len Pawluk and Angelo Quabba. All depict the Australian landscape in Summer, from the coast to the country.
All the works on exhibit were acquired through the long-standing Wangaratta Art Show, an annual event well known regionally for a focus on traditional painting which was supported by Rural City of Wangaratta for many years and an annual amount was set up to sponsor a prize and acquire the winning work for the Wangaratta Rural City Collection.
These works are now encompassed by the Wangaratta Art Gallery collection and are normally housed in the Rural City’s offices, it is a pleasure to be able to showcase them to celebrate Summer.
