Country and Western: landscape re-imagined 1988-2013 is a comprehensive landscape exhibition that aims to bring into focus the contrasting insights and cultural imperatives, both Indigenous (country) and non-Indigenous (western), that have given shape and substance to evolving attitudes and perceptions of the national landscape over the past 25 years. In the post bi-centennial landscape, artists have referenced the past, the future and the ever present, to identify and give a sense of place to the space they occupy. The experience can be grounded in the physical reality of a site, along with its deep, often-elusive spiritual associations. Yet, the idea of the bush as hostile and bewildering lingers on. A Perc Tucker Regional Gallery Touring exhibition. Curated by Gavin Wilson. Times: 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday, 10am - 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Public Holidays: 10am to 2pm.
