Janet Dawson 2 - 27 July 2013, Opening 6 July, 3 - 5 pm

Reflecting the mutability of nature, JANET DAWSON captures light and tone with a sure and subtle hand. Through landscape and still life, DAWSON traces life’s seasons of inevitable ebb and flux, seeing keenly the beauty throughout. A superb tonalist and consummate draughtsman, DAWSON is one of Australia’s most senior artists.
