This exhibit includes the 1872 work,
Impression, Sunrise that coined the name of the popular art movement.
This masterpiece together with the some forty impressionist and related paintings from the Marmottan, the Tate, and Australian and New Zealand collections is coming to the NGA.
The works reveal the formative characteristics of Impressionism-depiction of light, purer colour and capturing the momentary view- by a new generation of artists who abandoned their studios for the world outside.
This is an exciting opportunity to see a masterful exhibition of works
that became emblematic of a cultural movement.

Reminder: We have our Glenda Carter Workshop coming up on Sunday 6th May and we have some spaces left!
Full Day Workshop with Glenda Carter is on Sunday 6th of May: Contemporary mixed media The ‘Implied’ Landscape.
Glenda’s work relates to landscape and an emotional response to the atmosphere and the initial impact on the senses – to evoke a sense of place and imagery influenced by the climatic conditions. While much of her work is painted in rich sensuous colour and line, her city scapes are often worked in black and white, with strong gestural markmaking, as if lit by a flash of lightning in the night sky.
