[Sponsored] The leafy bayside suburb gets a creative retrospective exhibition
Did you know the lower North Shore had its own mini creative movement in the '70s and early '80s? The leafy bayside suburb of Lavender Bay was home to some of Sydney’s most loved and talented artists, which meant it was a rich hot spot of bohemian talent.
Sydney Living Museums' new exhibition Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay will capture this time, showcasing rarely seen archival works from private and public collections. See paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and experimental films, which celebrate the area and Sydney culture at large. Many of the works are accompanied by extracts from interviews with the artists, which explore the connections that made Lavender Bay an extraordinary hub of talent.
You'll see works by artists and residents of the 2060, including Brett Whiteley, Peter Kingston, Tom Carment, Philip Cox, Joel Elenberg, Robert Jacks, Rollin Schlicht, Martin Sharp, Garry Shead and Tim Storrier. Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay also recognises the ongoing pursuits of local artists and identities Wendy Whiteley and Peter Kingston who treasure the suburb's rich artistic heritage and natural tranquillity.
