Snapshot: Works from Council’s art collection


24 January–11 February 

This exhibition reflects the diverse collecting themes that have shaped Glen Eira City Council’s art collection since 1975. It includes suburban themes that reflect resident’s lifestyles; the work of significant Australian artists; works by members of the Boyd family who lived and worked in Murrumbeena; and works of quality by local artists. Curated by Diane Soumilas, this exhibition features new acquisitions, including a major painting by Eleanor Hart recently donated to Council’s art collection by the artist and photographs of local domestic interiors by Linda Wachtel commissioned by Council in 2017. Works by Fred Williams, Arthur Boyd, Brett Whiteley, Howard Arkley, George Johnston, Ponch Hawkes, Wolfgang Sievers, Erica McGilchrist and Jane Burton are also included in the exhibition.
