CONTEMPORISING THE MODERN
Photography From the Russell Mills Collection
6th June - 31st August 2018
50 Iconic Australian Photographs from some of Australia’s best known artists. Contemporising the Modern features iconic works by Max Dupain, Olive Cotton through to Contemporary work by Bill Henson and Narelle Autio.
Russell was initially drawn to the work of Australian photographer Olive Cotton, who achieved long-overdue recognition for her photography during the mid-1980s. Russell was captivated by Cotton’s imagery and acquired four works, making her the most represented photographer in his collection. Also well represented in the Mills collection is the work of Max Dupain including the iconic Sunbaker (1937/1980s), which has become synonymous with the advent of modernism in Australian Photography.
Contemporising the Modern is on loan from the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) and tours with funding from the Russell Mills Foundation.
SAMUEL ELYARD - THE COASTAL PAINTINGS
Until 31st August 2018
An exhibition of water-colour paintings by 19th century artist Samuel Elyard (1817 - 1910) These paintings are drawn from the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum's Halloran Collection and showcase local coastal areas. Paintings in this exhibition are from his various trips to the Crookhaven, Cape Saint George, Jervis Bay and Wreck Bay areas during the 1870s.
These two captivating exhibitions have been curated by Max Dingle.
SAMUEL ELYARD - CAPE ST GEORGE LIGHTHOUSE
Until 31st August 2018
Cape St George LIghthouse operated on the southern side of Jervis Bay from 1864 to 1899. During it's operation there were 23 ship-wrecks. The amazing history of the lighthouse is told in this exhibition, all the more poignant because in a few months the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum will become the custodian of the original lighthouse mantle, or cover to the lens and light.
This exhibition captures the essence of life in 19th century lighthouses, remote, wind-swept with often dramatic stories about the famillies responsible for keeping sailors safe.
