The Blue Chip Collectors' Exhibitions are a much anticipated event for astute collectors and art connoisseurs to view and acquire key pieces by major modern and contemporary Australian and overseas artists.
Most of the works in these carefully curated exhibitions have been sourced from private collections, and may not have been seen publically for many years. Others will be familiar from monographs, retrospectives and travelling shows. Above all, they represent works of the highest quality and significance in the artist's oeuvre.
A crucial aspect of these annual exhibitions is the inclusion of contemporary artists such as Amor, Brennan, Bridgewater and Christmann alongside acclaimed modern masters the calibre of Fairweather, Tuckson, Vassilieff and Williams. In presenting the works in this way, curator and Director, William Nuttall, is suggesting a vision of the future of Australian art - a glimpse of the blue chip artists of tomorrow.
A fully illustrated hard cover catalogue of this exhibition is available for $25.00 plus postage and handling.
