Dates & times
Thu 20 August — Sun 27 September 2009
The Boyd family is one of the most creative families in Australia’s cultural history. This exhibition focuses on ceramic pieces made by Arthur Boyd (1920-1999) and his father, Merric Boyd (1888-1959), considered to be Australia’s earliest art potter. Curator Grace Cochrane has drawn on the extensive collection of the Bundanon Trust to explore the connections between the two. The exhibition includes drawings by Merric Boyd of his family and environment, paintings and etchings by Arthur about his father, and some works by others in this exceptional family.
Curated by Grace Cochrane and toured by the Bundanon Trust.
