Bayside: Portrait of place

Join us to rediscover Bayside through exceptional artworks from some of Australia's finest artists.

To celebrate Bayside Gallery's 10th anniversary, from 10 July to 17 October 2021, we brought together significant artworks from public and private collections dating from the mid-19th century to the present, selected by guest curator Andrew Gaynor.

These works reveal the artists’ engagement with Bayside and the important legacy of the area within Australian art history.

For the first time, this major exhibition brings together important works from esteemed artists such as Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin, Clarice Beckett, Arthur Boyd, Sandra Leveson, Roger Kemp and Yvette Coppersmith amongst others.
