Art exhibitions in and around Geelong for August

This post is for the email subscribers who don’t visit the website very often and therefore, may not see the Exhibitions page which I update every week (I know, I am a glutton for punishment). These are the exhibitions that are on right now in the galleries. To keep your finger on the pulse of the local visual art scene, please don’t forget to visit the Exhibitions page regularly to find out what’s on. There are some big shows coming up later in the month…

Impressions of Geelong — a portrait of the city and its region

18 May 2013 to 25 August 2013
Over 150 years of artistic interpretations of the historic port city of Geelong and its surrounding districts. Includes rare historical works by artists including John Skinner Prout, ST Gill, William Duke, Eugene von Guérard, Walter Withers and Arthur Streeton. Selected modern and contemporary works by Lina Bryans, Marion Manifold, Mahgo Smith-Armstrong and Jan Senbergs extend this portrayal of the regional landscape into the present. Specific themes in the exhibition embrace the unmistakable landmark of the You Yangs, the popular coastal destinations of Queenscliff and the Surf Coast, as well as Geelong’s waterfront, rivers, gardens and streetscapes. Eugene von Guérard’s famous View of Geelong (1856) is a focal point of the exhibition that draws extensively on the Gallery’s permanent collection and includes recent acquisitions and a number of rarely seen works.
