In 2015—six months after being awarded the coveted Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship—James Drinkwater journeyed into the interior of Australia. Working en plein air in the dry creek beds with canvases roped to desert oaks, the artist created paintings, drawings and hand embellished unique state etchings.
Four Nanda\Hobbs artists have been selected in the Archibald Prize—Jun Chen, Jonathan Dalton, Kathrin Longhurst and Ben Smith while two of our artists are finalists in the Wynne Prize for landscape painting—James Drinkwater and Paul Ryan. Winners announced Friday 11 May.
As Chifley's art partner, we are delighted to have installed five magnificent works in the building's lobby by contemporary Indigenous artists of the Hermannsburg region. Chifley's grand and elegant lobby in Sydney's CBD is a magnificent setting for the museum quality masterpieces. They will be on display until early May.
